Prepare for Orientation

 
  • Orientation will be a busy time, so it’s important to plan ahead for the program. 
  • Once you have registered for your Summer Orientation program, please visit the Office of New Student Programs for a list of things to do before you come to orientation. You can also visit MyGuide for a comprehensive, easy to follow list.
  • In addition, please consider the following: Have classes in mind! Review the LSA Course guide before you arrive.
    • Consider 100-level courses, First-Year Seminars, and be mindful of prerequisite courses needed before you can declare your major.
  • Take all placement tests that are recommended: Math, Foreign Language, Chemistry, and the Directed Self-Placement for Writing.
    • You cannot start in a language at Michigan without a placement exam if you have had any formal instruction in that language. If you are beginning a new language, then a placement exam is not necessary.
  • Plan to register for a section of CSP 101 designated for incoming Fall students who are not in another learning community.
  • CSP Courses are listed on our website. CSP courses require overrides/permissions. Academic Advisors will request overrides for you until the first day of classes. However, once classes have begun, your instructor must put in the override request for you.
