Transfer Orientation

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 two options to choose from to complete your on-campus Orientation.

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:

  • First new students to register for classes - Students who attend Transfer Transition do not attend a Summer or Fall Orientation.

Option 2: Online Orientation for Transfer Students

Available beginning April 27

All admitted transfer students will be registered in the Online Orientation for Transfer Students. We will email you access information beginning April 27. Once you complete the steps in the Online Orientation you will then be able to register for classes throughout the spring and summer without having to physically come to campus. Students who complete the Online Orientation are not required to attend an on-campus orientation, but if you would like to come for an on-campus program please choose from the following three options:

Optional On-campus Orientations

Summer Orientation: June 24-26, 2015 or July 12-14, 2015

Summer 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. Although most of the content is targeted towards our new Freshmen population, Transfer Students are welcome to join the Summer programs and we will offer some separate sessions just for Transfer Students. See the tentative schedule for more details.

Upon registration for a Summer program, you will be charged a $125 Supplemental Summer Orientation fee if you choose to participate in one of the Summer Orientations. This fee is non-refundable and includes:

  • Housing in the Residence Halls for the student for two nights (on-campus housing is not available for family members)
  • Complimentary breakfast for the student and family members
  • Two lunch tickets per lunch
  • Unlimited family member access to the Family Program

*Payment must be received upon registration for Summer Program or your reservation will be cancelled.

**Missoula residents and non-traditional students who choose not to stay in the Residence Halls during Orientation can email orientation@mso.umt.edu to be considered for a partial refund. These will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
