Frequently Asked Questions at Fleming College

Do you have questions about your timetable, myCampus, OSAP and more? Graiden VanderVeen, Administrative Assistant to the Registrar, is here to help! Below, Graiden answers frequently asked questions sent to Fleming College’s Registrar’s Office.

How do I register for classes and get my timetable?

Timetables will be available starting the week of August 24, 2020 (timetables for some programs will be available later in the week, so please be patient as we release them). To view your timetable, you will need to access myCampus. After you login to myCampus, you will use the “My Student Centre” link from the menu on the left side of your screen.

Is Fleming College’s myCampus web portal important?

It’s a really good idea to get logged into myCampus as soon as possible and explore all of the tools available to you inside this portal. The myCampus portal links to other important services such as “My Mail” for your student email, “My Courses (D2L)” for access to course resources, and “My Files(H:)” for accessing your files stored on the Fleming network. All of your most important student information is stored within “My Student Centre”; this is where you will go to find your full timetable, financial information (such as balance due), final grades, contact information, etc.

What if I can’t see my timetable?

Timetables will be available for full-time students who have paid fees or have been approved through other financial arrangements, such as OSAP. New students with outstanding admissions requirements and returning students with academic holds will not see their timetables. Timetables will be available starting the week of August 24, but it may take a few days for your timetable to be loaded to your Student Centre. If you have met all the requirements, including paying your full fees or making financial arrangements, and your timetable isn’t available by August 28, please reach out to us:

New students: please email admissions@flemingcollege.ca

Returning students: please email records@flemingcollege.ca

How do I know my OSAP was approved?

To see whether your OSAP was approved, please log in to your OSAP portal and login or register. Fleming’s Financial Aid office can also assist you by providing you with other financial options.

What if I want to defer my start to January 2021, May 2021, or September 2021?

Learning Online at Fleming College launched to support student success

Fleming College Student Experience is excited to launch Learning Online at Fleming College, an online module to help students connect with academic supports, discover useful resources, and develop skills and strategies to become a successful online learner.

Fleming College students have access to a wide range of digital tools and technology, and Learning Online at Fleming College aims to help students navigate these platforms and understand the academic skills and strategies that go along with learning online.

“I hope that students, as well as faculty, benefit from this site and that it helps them thrive in online and blended learning environments,” said David Luinstra, Manager, Library and Tutoring & Academic Skills.

“This site provides students with a comprehensive guide to both the technical skills required to use platforms like our learning management system and videoconferencing solutions; but also advice that isn’t always associated with online learning, like how to effectively set up your study space, deliver a virtual presentation, and maintain your physical and mental health while working primarily in an online environment,” said David.

Learning Online at Fleming College features modules on Skills & StrategiesTechnologyAcademic Support, and Resources to help students succeed in the online learning environment.

The Skills & Strategies module provides helpful tips and effective learning strategies, the Technology module covers a variety of online platforms and digital tools that support learning online; and the Academic Support module includes key resources, how to access academic supports, and important information about the skills needed to succeed in coursework. For convenience, all links and resources from each module are available in the Resources module.

Explore all modules by visiting Learning Online at Fleming College and take advantage of this helpful resource.

Fleming College connects with future students via virtual live chat

As Fleming College prepares for its Fall semester, a helpful live chat feature has been added to the Fleming College website to help prospective students get their questions answered.

Since prospective students are unable to visit Fleming College due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the College has adapted to ensure prospective students have the information they need to make their post-secondary decision. This includes virtual tours to see Fleming’s Sutherland Campus, Frost Campus and Haliburton Campus, and adding a live chat to the Fleming College website.

The live chat is monitored Monday to Friday by Fleming’s Student Recruitment team, who are happy to connect with prospective students to answer their questions, share information about Fleming College programs, and connect them with resources and services.

Whether you are starting your post-secondary research and are curious about programs at Fleming College or have received an offer of admission and want more information, the live chat feature is a great resource to get the information you need.

And when the live chat service is unavailable, a contact box will appear for visitors to leave a note with their contact information. Once received, a member of the Student Recruitment team will follow up as soon as possible.

We look forward to chatting with you!

Learning Design & Support Team provides virtual support to Fleming faculty

Fleming College faculty and staff are showing their incredible commitment, creativity and resilience by adapting many academic programs to an online and alternate delivery format, ensuring Fleming students can achieve their learning outcomes. And behind-the-scenes, Fleming’s Learning Design & Support Team has been there along the way to provide support and guidance to faculty.

“The team has worked so hard and provided such amazing support and creativity for the academic division’s move to alternative delivery,” said Molly Westland, Director of Academic Quality, Planning and Operations.

This includes ongoing support for faculty with creating and revising courses, integrating learning technology, and administering and supporting D2L. To engage with faculty and provide helpful content, the Learning Design & Support Team distributes a weekly communication piece called “The Teaching Hub”, which is now available in podcast format for the Fleming community to enjoy.

To help prepare for Spring and Fall semesters, the Learning Design & Support Team hosted a Virtual Teaching & Learning Week from April 29 to May 6. The event featured 21 sessions with topics ranging from technology (such as D2L and Webex), to redesigning instruction and assessments for remote delivery, to teaching and learning during a pandemic, and student experiences with remote delivery. There was also a panel discussion about how Fleming Student Experience supported students with services like Counselling, Accessible Education Services, Tutoring & Academic Skills, Library services, Learning Strategies and more.

“Over 200 faculty, staff and administrators attended the live sessions, and the sharing among participants as well as panelists was awesome; we were all able to learn from each other in an online environment,” said Teaching & Learning Specialist Mary Overholt, adding that the session recordings are available on the LDS Team website.

“We’ve received really positive feedback on the week,” she said. “My favourite comment from our anonymous feedback survey so far is ‘LDS is a team of superheroes!’”

Fleming community stays connected amidst pandemic thanks to virtual Town Hall meetings

As Fleming College faculty and staff continue to practice physical distancing amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, Fleming College President Maureen Adamson is ensuring employees feel connected, engaged and supported through direct communication.

President Adamson is hosting virtual Town Hall meetings during the pandemic to help answers any questions faculty and staff may have. She is joined on Webex by members of Fleming’s leadership team, who address any department-specific questions relevant to their area.

Fleming employees receive invitations to the virtual Town Hall meetings via email and have an opportunity to email questions in advance. All questions are reviewed and the top 10 are addressed during the Town Hall. For those unable to attend the virtual meeting, recordings are available to view online later.

The first virtual Town Hall meeting was held Thursday, May 6 and featured President Adamson; Shelley Mantik, Director of HR Client & Union Relations; and Drew Van Parys, Vice-President of Economic & Community Development. This initial meeting addressed the impacts of COVID-19 on the Fleming community, achievements and challenges at Fleming during the crisis, and future plans. Approximately 400 people attended this virtual meeting and had the opportunity to provide feedback through the Virtual Town Hall Meeting Feedback Survey.

Many faculty and staff shared positive feedback about this virtual meeting format. This includes positive feedback on the Top 10 Questions format, appreciating the personable way information is being delivered, the clarity of messaging and information, and requests to continue the virtual Town Hall meetings going forward.

The virtual meetings have continued and the second one, hosted on Wednesday, May 13, focused on academics and plans for Fall semester. President Adamson was joined on Webex by Drew Van Parys; Linda Poirier, Dean of the School of Health & Wellness and Justice & Community Development; and Tom Phillips, Vice-President of Academic Experience.

This next virtual Town Hall is Wednesday, May 20 and President Adamson will be joined by Sandra Dupret, Vice-President of Student Experience. All Fleming College employees have been invited to attend.
