Welcome to Bootcamp

Welcome New Lassondians!

We hope you are as excited as we are to kick-off your first year at the Lassonde School of Engineering!

Have you accepted your offer? Have you booked your new student enrolment appointment? If not, click here.

What's next?

Now that you have accepted your offer and booked your enrolment appointment you will receive an email from us about how to prepare for your new student enrolment appointment!

If you don't live nearby, you'll receive an enrolment advising package via e-mail containing a step-by-step guide to enrolling in your courses. If you live locally, you'll participate in an in-person enrolment appointment. At Lassonde, we call this in-person session "Bootcamp"!

Bootcamp is an all day experience and is designed to prepare you for your first year. Bootcamp gives you a hands-on sneak peek into life at Lassonde. By the end of the day you'll have met your academic advisor and enrolled in courses, participated in a simulated first year lab, connected with both new and current Lassonde students, and explored the new Bergeron Centre for Engineering Excellence. All in all, a day you don't want to miss!

We'll start things off in the Bergeron Centre for Engineering Excellence (#81 on the Keele Campus Map). From there, you'll be guided to the other sessions by our team of Lassonde students and staff.

Here is what you'll be doing that day:

9:00am - 9:30am

Here is what you’ll need to do to prepare for your Bootcamp or distance advising appointment:

Step 1: Set Up Your Passport York Account – This will allow you to access the course registration and enrolment module.

Step 2: Take the Math Quiz – Don’t panic! This is simply a tool our advising team will use to help pick your courses. Try to complete this at least 3 days before your appointment date.

Step 3: If you're attending Bootcamp, plan to bring photo ID. You’ll need this if you want to get your YU Card. If you're enrolling via distance advising, you can get your YU Card when you're on campus in the future.

If you need to reschedule your appointment or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. Call us at 416-650-8215, e-mail us at ask@lassonde.yorku.ca, or join us for one of our weekly online chats!

Something to consider:

If you have a learning disability, mental health disability, or physical, sensory or medical disability, we encourage you to register as soon as possible with York University’s Counselling and Disability Services (CDS). It can take time to arrange for academic accommodations. Registering early can help to ensure accommodations are in place as soon as possible.
