Orientation 2021

Summer 2021 Orientation programs will take place remotely. Students will receive email correspondence related to starting their new student checklist, selecting their Orientation date, and the steps they need to take to complete their Orientation requirements.

Welcome Week 2021

At this point in time, Welcome Week 2021 is planned to be an in-person experience. New students should plan to participate in Welcome Week September 1-6, 2021. As the University of Minnesota, State, and Federal guidelines are updated as part of Covid-19 response, we will adjust the Welcome Week program. We will keep incoming students informed of any changes to the program. Welcome Week is a critical component in each students' transition, and it is full of useful content to help you as you are beginning your time at the U of M Twin Cities.

Please check back to this site for ongoing changes and information to Orientation & Transition Experience's programs. For up-to-date information for the University of Minnesota, please reference U of M Safe Campus
