Your First Month

College is an exciting time - time to meet new friends, discover new ideas, and develop new skills. Start your college journey off right by attending both the academic orientation and the Fanshawe Student Union orientation.

If you already have health or dental insurance, you can opt out of the coverage offered by the Fanshawe Student Union.

Your Fanshawe tuition and fees provides a free bus pass for you to use. However, if you want to drive to campus, you'll need to figure out parking. You may also want a locker.

To be successful at Fanshawe, you'll need to learn how the college uses technology. Learn more about FanshaweOnline (FOL), WebAdvisor, and MyFanshawe.
