Orientation is a required program for all students new to the University of Minnesota. Throughout the Orientation program, you will learn about University resources, meet with an academic advisor, and register for classes. To complement New Student Orientation, we offer a Parent & Family Orientation program for those who will be supporting their student through their transition to the University.
