Welcome New Transfer Students

Mark Your Calendar!

Mark your calendar for a special Transfer Welcome Event on Friday, January 21. This drop-in event will be held from 11:30am-1:30pm in Coffman Union Room 303. Stop by to meet other transfer students and current student leaders, grab some free food, and pick up a free U of M t-shirt. All new transfer students are invited to attend.


On-Campus Orientation - All new transfer students must attend On-Campus Orientation in January. If you have not received information about securing your Orientation date, contact your college of enrollment.

Online Orientation is now available. Completing Online Orientation will help prepare you for the required On-Campus Orientation, as well as allow you to shorten your On-Campus Orientation experience.

You can now access the Class Selection Tutorial, which will teach you more about the course registration system and help you prepare for Orientation.
