Transfer Parents and Families

We are excited to partner with you as we help to transition your student to the University of Minnesota Twin Cities. We can’t wait to have them join the Gopher community in the spring semester!

Your student received information about completing their New Student Checklist and selecting their required Orientation date. Students have the option of attending Orientation on-campus or remotely (via Zoom). To complement Transfer Student Orientation, we are offering two on-campus Parent & Family Orientation dates.

We invite you to attend an on-campus Parent & Family Orientation program on either Friday, January 7 or Monday, January 10. This half-day program focuses on the major issues students face when transferring institutions such as registration, financial aid, health & safety, and navigating the University. The program is free to attend and includes lunch.

Once your student has registered for their Orientation date you will be able to begin your registration. You will need your student's 7-digit ID number and their date of birth. You are not required to choose the same date as your student's scheduled Orientation.
