YU START is a New Student Transition Program designed to support you as you make your way into and through your first year at York University. During this transitional program, you’ll enrol in courses, connect with fellow classmates, student leaders, faculty members and student services staff, and become more familiar with campus life, supports and resources available to you.

If you are part of the YU START program, you’ll receive an email with specific instructions on when and how to access your online enrolment tutorial. You can also check if you are part of YU START on the Am I in YU START? page. Note, before you can enrol in courses, you first complete an online enrolment tutorial (Step 1 of the YU START program).
