Welcome to the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts. We look forward to meeting you at Orientation. Most information about Orientation (including a detailed schedule) can be found on the Office of New Student Programs (ONSP) website, but this page will share some information unique to LSA.
Once you officially reply to your U-M acceptance letter and have paid the university deposit, the next step is to register for an Orientation session. If you haven’t, or if you’re not sure if you’ve registered for an Orientation session, please contact ONSP.
You will receive emails from ONSP prior to your Orientation date with detailed information and a link to MyAdvising. Please complete all required tasks, including the online placement exams.

You do not need to come to Orientation with a planned course schedule but having courses in mind is helpful. We encourage you to look over the online LSA Course Guide before coming to Orientation, but please don’t feel pressured to have the perfect schedule before your Advising Appointment Date. Your Orientation Advising Team will help you make good decisions to set you up for success. Come to Orientation with an open mind and intellectual curiosity and you’ll leave with a schedule that will be a great start to your Michigan experience.
