For Your University of Minnesota Transfer Student Orientation

We are excited to see you at Transfer Student Orientation next week! Below you will find important information for your orientation.

Online Orientation is Required
Transfer students are required to participate in Online Orientation prior to attending an on-campus orientation program. Students who attend orientation without completing Online Orientation may not be able to register for classes until they do so. If you have not completed Online Orientation, please complete it before your on-campus orientation. Be sure to print the Certificate of Online Orientation verification page and bring it with you to Transfer Orientation. Click here to complete the Online Orientation.

Arriving at Orientation
For directions and parking information, go to www.ofyp.umn.edu/directions.

Due to multiple construction projects on and around campus, please follow the directions listed on the above Website. DO NOT USE GPS DIRECTIONS, as these routes will be incorrect. Please allow an extra 20 minutes in getting to campus, as traffic congestion around campus will be significant.

After parking in the East River Road Garage, take the elevator to Level 1/Plaza Level. Then follow the signs to Coffman Union's ground floor for Orientation check-in.
