Welcome to the University of Michigan-Flint!

All first year students are required to attend a one day orientation (you must be present the entire session, and an orientation fee will be added to your tuition bill), during which you will learn more about UM-Flint, meet people who will be a part of your UM-Flint journey, and have fun! During orientation, you will discuss UM-Flint with currently enrolled students, learn strategies to become successful in your transition from high school to the University, and become orientated to your new surroundings. During orientation sessions, we will review policies and procedures unique to UM-Flint, including graduation, technology, and much more. Before orientation is over, you will plan your schedule with the help of an academic advisor/counselor, and register for your courses.
