What is New Student Orientation?

New Student Orientation is a required two-day overnight program scheduled sometime between June 8 and July 14. Orientation is required of every new student coming to the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. August dates are available for International Students.

During Orientation, you will be placed into a small group with an Orientation Leader who will lead you through your Day 1 activities. You will learn about campus resources, meet with your college of enrollment and prepare for course registration. All students will spend the night in Frontier Hall to experience a residence hall firsthand. On Day 2, you will register for your fall semester classes.
