The Summer Orientation program is the largest orientation program run by the University of Michigan. For nine weeks in the summer, beginning with the first Sunday in June through the first week of August, new first-year students arrive on campus for a three-day orientation program. The office of New Student Programs (ONSP) has developed a series of sessions for students to introduce them to many features of the University and to help them understand their roles as students. More than 5,000 students go through these programs each year. CSP usually orients the bulk of its entering students (250) in these programs.
All first-year students are required to attend Summer Orientation. Students admitted through CSP will have separate sessions and academic advising meetings to attend during orientation.
