Transfer New Student Orientation
Welcome to the University of Montana Family!
We are excited you chose to become a Grizzly! Here's some information to help you get started with your transition to campus. Before completing New Student Orientation be sure to complete your Pre-Orientation Checklist.
We recognize that as a transfer student*, you may have already gone through an orientation program and feel rather confident in this transition. We also know that colleges and universities can be very different, so orientation can be an important experience for those who would like a little more insight into the way we do things here.
The New Student Orientation experience extends beyond course registration. It provides you an opportunity to learn about; all the wonderful things we have to offer outside the classroom, the tools we have to help you be a successful student, as well as your new responsibilities as a UM student. The decision to attend an on-campus orientation program in addition to the online module is entirely yours.
*To be considered a transfer student, you must have completed 12 semester credits at a college or university, post-high school graduation, and earned at least a 2.0 GPA. College credits earned by students still in high school do not count toward this 12 credit requirement. If you are not a transfer student, please visit our First-Year New Student Orientation page instead.

Online New Student Orientation
This online orientation will walk you through the steps necessary to clear your holds, learn about our registration system, familiarize yourself with campus resources, schedule an advising appointment, and register for classes. Once you complete the program you will be able to register for classes without physically coming to campus.
Students who complete the online orientation do not need to attend an on-campus program.

Post-baccalaureate students are not required to complete an orientation program. You are able to register for classes on your own, or contact an academic advisor for assistance.
