Incoming Transfer

We are delighted that you have chosen to continue your education at this University! As a new transfer student, you are required to attend an orientation program to aid in your transition to the University of Michigan.

During orientation, you will learn about many aspects of life at the University of Michigan that may be different from your previous school. You will also meet with an academic advisor and register for classes. You cannot register for classes until you attend orientation.

Please select your term of admission from the list on the left for the steps to take after your admission and information about the orientation programs.

Unsure about your term of admission? Here’s a guide:

  • Fall Term = Classes start in September
  • Winter Term = Classes start in January
  • Spring Term = Classes start in May
  • Summer Term = Classes start in late June/early July



Winter 2020 students who have paid their enrollment deposits will receive orientation information approximately one week after your enrollment deposit has been paid, beginning in mid-November.

If you have questions about your next steps or the orientation programs, please call ONSP at (734)-764-6413.
