Make changes to your undergraduate program

Information fair on program changes

The fair, which usually takes place in February or early March, features faculty representatives, including academic advisors, as well as representatives from French Immersion Studies, the Career Development Centre and the Financial Aid and Awards Service. It’s the perfect opportunity to meet resource people, ask questions, discuss your program options and even request a change to your program on the spot.

See Make changes to your undergraduate program to find out more.

Orientation and integration

If you’re new to the University of Ottawa, we encourage you to take part in some of the activities we’ve developed specially for new students. These activities run from the summer months until September. They are designed to help you become familiar with the University of Ottawa, meet new people and have fun with other students!

See the activities for new students page for more information.


Convocation is a very special event that brings together graduates and members of the University of Ottawa community. For graduating students, it is a time to celebrate their accomplishments in front of family and friends. And for members of the University community, it is a time to celebrate the efforts of students they have supported during their studies at the University of Ottawa.

There are two convocations each academic year: one in October/November and one in June. To register and attend, visit the Convocation ceremonies web page.
