The Office of Admissions and Orientation conducts orientation programs for newly admitted freshmen, transfer students, and parents of new students. These programs focus on academic expectations, requirements at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, and various aspects of campus life. The programs also make students aware of existing services available to them: counseling; tutoring; academic advising; life/work planning; and social and cultural activities. The special orientation program for parents of new students acquaints parents with the organizational and programmatic structure of the University. Once admitted to the University each student will receive information about Orientation. It is expected that all new students, freshmen and transfers, attend Orientation.
