We are excited you chose to become a Grizzly! Here's some information to help you get started with your transition to campus. You have three options to choose from to complete your on-campus Orientation.

This experience extends beyond course registration; It will prepare you for your transition to campus. We work to keep programming as relevant and informative as possible.

Spring Orientation is designed to provide you with an early college experience with your future classmates and campus. Program is a full two days, so plan your travel accordingly!

Students living in the Residence Halls can move in early to their room, but will pay an early-arrival fee of $20 per night until January 24, the official move-in day for the Residence Halls.

Fall Admits:

Option 1: Transfer Transition - April 20, 2015

Transfer Transition is an early registration day for students who plan to transfer to the University of Montana. During the daylong event, students will meet with academic advisors to develop schedules and register for classes. Information will also be available about campus resources, on-campus and off-campus living options, and the costs and payment options associated with attending UM. Registration for this program is available online.

Benefits of attending Transfer Transition:
