Winter Admits

Congratulations on your admission for the Winter Term.

Now that you have been admitted, there are several things you will need to do before coming to campus in January. 

1. Pay the $300 enrollment deposit

This deposit guarantees your spot in the First-Year class and triggers many other processes for you to become an enrolled student. If you don’t pay the enrollment deposit, or do not have it waived by the University, you will not be able to sign up for orientation and register for classes.

2. Get your uniqname

Your uniqname is your official University of Michigan computing account and email address.  Once the University receives your Enrollment Deposit, it takes about 2 days before you will be able to set up your uniqname, and it may take another 24-48 hours for your uniqname to officially become active. Your uniqname is also your new email address. For example, if your uniqname is johndoe, your new university email address is "".  Please be vigilent in checking your emails to this account as all university communications will be directed to it.

3. Sign up for and attend orientation.

Use the navigation to the left to learn more about the orientation programs.  You must have a uniqname before you can sign up for orientation.

4. Visit the "Preparing for Orientation" Section

The Preparing for Orientation section (at left) will help make sure that you do all the things necessary to have a successful orientation program.
