Transfer Student Orientation

The mission of the Orientation and Transition Experiences office is to support students in their transition to the U of M, by offering high-quality, dynamic experiences. Although we wish we could be in community with each other for our Transfer Orientations, we have chosen to prioritize everyone’s safety and will be implementing remote orientation programming. As usual, we are committed to providing supportive and dynamic orientation programming within this new model. 

Transfer Orientation is a 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 orientation program that meets your transfer needs.  This orientation includes completing the Orientation Prep Course and engaging in sessions with your college and an academic advisor (via Zoom). 

Once you have confirmed your enrollment, you will receive information about completing your New Student Checklist and selecting an Orientation date.

At orientation, you will:

  • meet with an academic advisor and register for classes

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

  • connect with other transfer students



  • Get In Touch

    If you have any questions regarding Student Orientation or Welcome Week. We would be happy to answer your questions.
