First-year Students

We look forward to working with you as you start your journey as a Michigan Wolverine.

Orientation will be a hybrid experience involving both virtual and in-person components for all students. Orientation will cover the many aspects of life at the University of Michigan and campus resources. All steps of orientation are required for new students.

Orientation will have three main components: pre-advising activities and online placement exams, Virtual Academic Advising, and a one-day On-campus Experience.

You will be invited to register for orientation starting in November (winter term admits) or April (spring, summer, and fall admits). Check back then to learn more about how to select and prepare for both your Virtual Academic Advising date and On-campus Experience.

Learn how to register.

Orientation Timing

Orientation registration will launch in November for students starting in the winter term, and late April for students starting in spring, summer, and fall terms.

You will complete pre-advising activities and online placement exams before your Virtual Academic Advising.
