New Student Orientation for Freshmen and Transfer Students coming to Main Campus

If you are a new freshman or transfer student, you are required to attend an on-campus orientation and advisement program prior to your first semester. Complete information is mailed to newly admitted students. Academic orientation takes place during the summer for the fall semester and in early January for the spring semester.

You will have an opportunity during orientation to meet individually with academic advisors, faculty members, classmates, and current CMU students. You will be extremely busy as you explore career options, outline your program of study, and register for your first class schedule.

If you are undecided on a program of study, do not worry. You will not be alone. Our experienced staff will assist you as much as possible. There will be career information, tours of campus, and special activities to acquaint you with our university.
