Assistance Days

Registration Assistance Days (R.A.D.) at OCAD University is held each year in
late June or early July. Coordinated by the Office of the Registrar, R.A.D. is designed to help new undergraduate students prepare for first-year registration — and the year ahead.

New students should watch for an email from Office of the Registrar with details and instructions on how to sign up to attend a R.A.D. session.

Each day's schedule runs from approximately 9:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Participants should plan to attend for the full 4.5 hours in order to meet OCAD U staff, get to know some classmates, tour the community and campus, plan and schedule fall 2016 and winter 2017 courses, and more!

Parents/family/guardians are welcome at R.A.D. too!

Plan to attend R.A.D.!

We look forward to perhaps meeting you at R.A.D. where you will have the opportunity to:

> Meet upper-year volunteer student peer mentors
> Connect with your peers, OCAD U faculty and staff
> Have your OCAD U photo ID made
> Participate in an OCAD U campus/community tour
> Prepare for fall 2016 and winter 2017 registration
> Take part in a daily information/orientation session for parents/family
> Visit the Mini Expo and find out about student-run groups,
   university services and housing options
> Meet your OCAD Student Union

Do you have to attend R.A.D.?

Attending a R.A.D. session is NOT mandatory and we recognize that some students will be prevented from attending due to "geographical challenges" (i.e., you don't live within a reasonable to participate).

Students who cannot attend R.A.D. will find supportive and helpful information on the Registration and myocadu Guide page.

More information

Full R.A.D. details will be sent via email from Office of the Registrar and will contain information about how to sign up and participate in R.A.D.
