Your New Student
Orientation, coordinated by the Office of New Student Programs (ONSP), is required for all new students. After your student has paid the required enrollment deposit, your student will receive an email when it is time to register for Orientation. Most incoming freshmen who are admitted for the Fall Term will attend the 3-day “Summer Orientation Program.” For complete details about the “Summer Orientation Program” as well as information about orientation for international students, transfer students, or freshmen not admitted to the Fall Term, visit www.onsp.umich.edu.
Parent & Family Orientation
An optional Parent and Family Orientation Program is available for parents and adult family members of freshmen admitted to the fall term. Parent and Family Orientation Programs are also offered for parents and adult family members of transfer students admitted to fall or winter terms.
The Freshman Parent & Family Orientation program is a 2-day program that provides parents and family members with the chance to learn more about the resources that the University of Michigan provides. Over 30 sessions of the Parent and Family Orientation Program are available during the summer, so you are sure to find one that works with your schedule. The Transfer Parent & Family Orientation program is a 1-day program that provides information about U-M resources and focuses on the unique transition needs of transfer students and their families.
