Freshman Orientation

All first-year students new to the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences (CFANS) are required to attend a 2-day overnight orientation session. Orientation sessions are held in June and July.

Students who have paid their confirmation fee receive an email in March (not earlier) with specific orientation dates, registration instructions, and other details. NOTE: Whenever you pay your fee, it may take up to 2 weeks for the fee to be processed. After it's processed, we'll email you with orientation information. 

The goal of this 2-day Orientation session is to give incoming students the opportunity to:

  • learn about CFANS and U of M programs and services
  • register for courses, with the assistance of an adviser
  • meet other first-year students

Fall 2019 Freshman Orientation 2-Day Sessions - beginning April 3rd you can sign into MyU to begin your checklist and choose your session.

Please note that you will not be able to access the checklist until April 3, 2019 If a session is full or you are not eligible for that session it will not show up as an option for you.
