People eating in the Wildcat DenOne of the first things you are going to want to do is sign up for a new student orientation session.

  • If you have been admitted for our fall semester, you will choose an orientation session taking place in the summer,

  • If you have been admitted for our winter semester, you will attend orientation the week prior to classes beginning in January,

  • If you have been admitted for summer you need to contact the Academic And Career Advising  at 906-227-1707 for class and orientation registration.

The orientation website has more information about new student orientation. Information about our parent orientation sessions is also available on the orientation website.

Each session has limited seating and registration is on a first come, first served basis. The best way to ensure you get the session you prefer is to register now. If not, be sure to return to this page as soon as you make your decision to attend.

The earlier you attend new student orientation, the more choices you will have in setting your first semester class schedule. While sections of popular freshmen-level classes are held for students who participate in orientation later in the summer, you'll have more options if you attend an earlier orientation session.
