Parents, Families, & Guests

Orientation & Transition Experiences (OTE) is here to support you and your student's transition to the U of M. Our Parent Orientation Resources page provides a solid introduction to the University’s departments integral in a student's 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 works 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 your student has attended New Student 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!
