Important - Before your program starts, we ask that you visit your Moodle site. Under the "Student" header select student guidelines, policy acceptance forms.
You will be asked to view three separate policy/guidelines and accept them as part of attending your program here at Portage College.
Parents and families are an important part of the transition for students to their college experience. We understand parents may still have questions about how to make that transition successfully and what it means to be a member of the Portage.
