New Student Orientation Schedule

Welcome to the UM Family!

We look forward to seeing you on campus for our in-person New Student Orientation program!

Families are encouraged to attend programming on both Monday and Tuesday, August 23 - 24, 2021 for any session marked with an asterisk (*). Students who are not living on campus are welcome to join in pre-orientation activities if they wish. The remainder of the week is devoted to setting up our new students to be successful members of the University of Montana Family, and they will be placed into small groups of peers.

All sessions during New Student Orientation are mandatory for new first-year students. 

If you are a student with a disability and wish to request reasonable accommodations for an orientation session, contact Devin Carpenter at orientation@mso.umt.edu to discuss the specific modifications. Please be advised, we may request that you work with the Office for Disability Equity located in Lommasson Center 154 in order to coordinate your reasonable modifications. For more information, visit the Office for Disability Equity website.
