Orientation at the University of Michigan-Flint

Orientation at the University is a required program designed to facilitate a smooth transition to UM-Flint and assist you in making the most of your college experience. During orientation, you will discuss UM-Flint with currently enrolled students, learn strategies to being successful in the University environment, and become orientated to your new surroundings.

Orientations are specific to your admission type.

First-Year (Freshman) Student Orientation

All first year students are required to attend a two-day/overnight orientation program and must be present the entire time. Overnight accommodations will be provided by our on-campus residential hall (First Street Residence Hall).  An orientation fee will be added to your tuition bill. We will review policies and procedures unique to UM-Flint including graduation requirements 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.

Transfer Student Orientation

As a transfer student, we recognize that you may need different levels of information and in order to accommodate your needs we offer two different orientation types (on-campus and online) designed specifically to assist you in making an easy and uncomplicated transition. Simply decide which type of orientation you would like to attend, then register for the date that is most convenient.


Dual Enrolled Student Orientation

You will learn about all the wonderful services available to students (including dual enrolled students) like the free membership to the Recreation Center, free tutoring services for any class, and help from academic advisors/counselors. Take full advantage of all that is available to you as a student at UM-Flint.
