Register for an Academic Advising Date

Registration for Orientation will begin in mid-April. You will not be able to register for an Academic Advising Date until you have received an email to do so from the Office of New Student Programs.


Enrollment Deposit & Uniqname

Before you can register for orientation, you must pay the $300 enrollment deposit (or apply and approve to have it waived by the University). In addition, you must set up your official University of Michigan computing account and get your uniqname. It takes a few days for the enrollment deposit and the uniqname to officially become activated in the University of Michigan system. You will not be able to register for an Academic Advising Date for orientation until the enrollment deposit and the uniqname have been fully activated in the system.


Orientation Invitation

Remember, once you receive your orientation invitation, you will not be able to access the Academic Advising Date registration until your uniqname and password have been created, and once created, it can take up to 24-hours before your uniqname is activated in the system.
