While you're at it..

  • Check out your Welcome Guide for New International Students on eLearn!
    It has everything you need to know (and then some) about starting at CapU and will be an important resource for you to reference at different times throughout your studies. To access the Welcome Guide, log in to eLearn and click on the Welcome Guide for New International Students course in your dashboard.
  • Sign up for a student mentor!
    Our student mentors are part of the International Leadership & Mentorship Program (ILMP) and are specifically trained to help you navigate your first term at CapU. As our mentors are in their second year or more, they are seasoned pros and eager to share helpful tips and tricks for being a successful student, show you how to access student services, and invite you to fun events so you can start meeting new people and making new friends.
  • Update your contact info!
    It is important that we have your most up to date contact info, especially if you have a new Canadian address. So please be sure you double check your student account to confirm your information is accurate. To do this, log in to your myCapU account and click on the “Personal Information” tab, and make any required updates from there.
