Online Orientation

To help you get ready for September, we have developed UM Essentials, an online guide to achieving success as a U of M student that will provide you with the information you'll need to thrive in your new environment.

UM Essentials covers basics such as:
  • Course selection and registration
  • Strategies for success in the classroom
  • Ways to stay active and healthy during your time as a student
  • Respect and diversity on campus
  • Sexual violence awareness
  • Academic integrity
  • Support services for students
All new students are expected to complete UM Essentials. Students who complete the guide prior to September 18, 2019 will be entered to win one of two prizes of $500 toward Fall Term tuition.

To access UM Essentials:

Log into UM Learn
using your UMnetID (or click here to activate your UMnetID, if you haven't already done so).
