The BUILD Program generally runs in the last full week prior to the beginning of class (2017 dates to be announced). Participants requesting early check-in for their residence room will be assisted with this on the Sunday prior to official move-in day (a full week early). Space in the Program is limited, therefore students are encouraged to register as early as possible by downloading, completing, and submitting a BUILD Program Application.
Please note that because space in the program is limited, application does not mean automatic acceptance. Applicants will be contacted to confirm their intention to attend, as well as to confirm their acceptance to the program. (Please be aware that some students may require additional/updated documentation in order to receive academic accommodations when class begins. Program staff will be available to assist with arrangements for that). To learn more about the documentation requirements for academic accommodation at a post-secondary level, please review our Documentation of Disability page.
