Orientation & Transition Experiences (OTE) is here to support you and your students’ transition to the U of M. Our Parent Orientation program provides a solid introduction to the University’s departments integral in a students transition as well as the academic expectations of the University. 

The University sees parents and families as partners in supporting a student from transition to the University through graduation.  OTE work closely with the Parent and Family Programs office which was created to connect you with University and it’s resources and services. Parent and Family Programs will be your point of contact with the University after you have attended Parent Orientation.

OTE will continue to support your student’s transition through Welcome Week and into the next year as they start their U of M journey!
