Incoming Transfer

Transfer Orientation is a one-day, on-campus program required of all new transfer students.  We recognize that you are coming to the U of M with previous college experience and offer an abbreviated orientation program that meets your transfer needs.  This includes completing an online orientation prior to arriving to your on-campus orientation experience.

Orientation & Transition Experiences will begin communicating orientation related information once you have confirmed your enrollment with the Office of Admissions.

At orientation, you will:

  • meet with an academic advisor and register for classes

  • become familiar using the University’s course management tool Canvas

  • meet with one stop financial aid counselors

  • visit the resource fair to learn more about university resources available to you as a new student

  • connect with the transfer student leaders

  • have the option to take a campus tour

We encourage your parents and guests to participate in the Parents, Families and Guests Orientation program
