On Arrival

  1. Go to the International Office and give them my study permit so they can make a copy for their files (if I lose this important document, the office will then have a copy).
  2. Pay my fees at the Registrar’s Office (if I have not already done so).
  3. Update my local (Canadian) address and cell phone number on my Student Portal as soon as I have it.
    Remember to change this every time I move.
  4. Get my Conestoga student card photo ID taken on campus (ONE Card).
  5. Set up my Student Login account including email, Student Portal and eConestoga account.
  6. Select a locker.
  7. Open a Canadian bank account.
  8. Tour the campus.
  9. Learn about local public transit for Conestoga students:
  10. Read and understand Conestoga’s Student Rights and Responsibilities Policy in the Conestoga Student Guide.
  11. If I’m studying in a program that includes a work placement or a co-op work term, make sure the Immigration Officer at the Canadian airport gives me both a study permit AND a separate co-op work permit. (I can show them my letter of admission which should include a page that discusses my program’s work requirements.)
