Welcome Week Transfer Track is the second step (after New Student Orientation) in your transition to the University of Minnesota. Welcome Week is strongly recommended for new transfer students.
Welcome Week is a multi-day experience directly before fall classes begin. You will meet fellow new students, spend time with your college of enrollment, learn more about U of M, and explore the Twin Cities community. Welcome Week will help you feel more comfortable and confident as you start your experience at the U and begin classes, not to mention it is a lot of fun! You will get to participate in key campus traditions including Pride & Spirit (featuring the annual “M” photo on the football field) and more!
We know that students who attend Welcome Week are more confident when they start classes because they have had time to meet friends, navigate campus and get settled. Plan family vacations, work schedules, and housing leases (if living off campus) accordingly so that you don't miss out on one of the most important experiences of your college career.
