ORNT 118 - Orientation

You can find the specific date, time and location of your ORNT 118 on your schedule, by logging in through mySAIT or on the Ellucian GO app. Your schedule will be available in mid-July.

New students

New students beginning a full-time program will be required to attend orientation. Your program-specific orientation is a one-day event where you'll have the chance to meet your instructors, take a tour and connect with your peers. Lunch will be provided to new students registered in ORNT 118.

Program-specific orientation requirements

Some programs have program orientation requirements — check to see if your program requires any additional pre-orientation tasks prior to your first day.

International students

In addition to your program-specific orientation, international students are required to attend the International Student Orientation on Monday, Aug. 27 in Macdonald Hall. This is your opportunity to connect with our staff from the International Centre and fellow international students, learn about key resources on campus that are available to support you throughout your studies and to get information specific to your status as an international student at SAIT.

Apprentice students

As an apprentice, you'll attend your orientation on your first day of classes. Learn more about the services available to support your success throughout your apprenticeship.


Orientation is the kick-off for First8, a series of events during your first eight weeks at SAIT to help you succeed.
