Information session to help non-traditional learners find their places

Do you know someone who is contemplating attending the University of Windsor as a returning, part-time, or mature student?

Student Recruitment is hosting an online event to support non-traditional learners in conjunction with campus partners in Continuing Education, Central Academic Advising, Student Awards & Financial Aid, the Organization of Part-time University Students, and Admissions.

Find Your Place will include a 30-minute presentation followed by breakout room sessions where attendees can ask questions on Wednesday, Aug. 10, at 6:30 p.m.

The online event is designed for individuals to learn about the many pathways to completing a UWindsor degree (or taking one course) this fall, whether attending part-time, when working, full-time, day, evenings, in person or online, along with highlighting the students supports to help them prepare a plan to succeed.
