Summer Admits

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.

Please check back in 2023 for upcoming Orientation details. 


If you have any questions, contact the Office of New Student Programs at 734-764-6413 or email

Please be sure to do the following to prepare for Orientation:

Pay the $300 Enrollment Deposit

1. Pay the $300 enrollment deposit

This deposit guarantees your spot in the Summer Term and triggers many other processes for you to become an enrolled student. If you do not pay the enrollment deposit, or do not have it waived by the University, you will not be able to complete orientation and register for classes.

2. Create your Uniqname

Create 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 newstudent, your new university email address is "". Please check your emails regularly to this account as all university communications will be directed to it. Information about Orientation will be sent to this email.

3. Wait for Information about Orientation to be released

Please check back closer to the Summer 2023 term. More information about Orientation will be available in the winter.
