Spring Term Orientation
Spring Term orientation will be Monday, May 6, 2013.
Any student starting classes at Michigan during the Spring Term must attend Spring Term Orientation. Spring Term Orientation will serve as an introduction to the University community, giving you a capsulated view of the variety of opportunities available to you. During orientation, you will complete all necessary procedures for class registration including placement testing, general information sessions, and academic advising. Orientation also gives you a chance to meet other new students.
Program Check In
Spring Term Orientation Check In will be 8:00 - 8:20 a.m. at the Angell Hall "Posting Wall". Angell Hall is located at 435 S. State Street. Enter Angell Hall through the front doors (with the columns) and follow the signs to the check in area.
Following check-in, you will attend a welcome and information session, take language placement exams if necessary, go on a Campus Tour, talk to a panel of current U-M students, participate in academic advising from your school or college, and register for classes. The program will be completed by 6:00 p.m. Students should plan on being available for the entire day.
