Welcome to the University of Michigan!

We look forward to working with you as you start your journey as a Michigan Wolverine. Orientation is required for all new first-year and transfer, degree-seeking students. Due to the impact of COVID-19, new undergraduate students enrolling in summer and fall terms will complete orientation remotely.

We realize that an online orientation program is not the same as an in-person experience. Nevertheless, we are committed to providing the best online orientation experience possible. You will have an opportunity to learn about campus, meet with an academic advisor, talk with current students and register for your first semester of classes.  

After you have been admitted to UM and paid the $300 EDR, you will receive an email in mid-May to register for an Advising Date.  You will also receive instructions on how to complete the online orientation modules and placement tests prior to your Advising Date.
