You'll have a variety of dates from which to choose, although each orientation date has a cap of 12 Honors students. Register soon to improve the chances that we will have space available on your preferred orientation date.

An Overview of Honors Orientation
Day 1: You'll join incoming students from across the university for your first day and a half of orientation, taking placement exams, touring the university, and learning the university's library and computing systems.
Day 2: Before lunch, an Honors Peer Advisor will escort your group to the Honors Program Office for lunch with the Honors staff and advisors. After lunch, you'll receive the Summer Book and have an introduction to Honors Advising/academics, meeting with the Program Director, Professor Tim McKay. You'll hear about the requirements of the college and the Honors Program, and then have a chance to discuss your academic plans individually with an Honors Advisor, who will help you select appropriate courses for your first term at U-M. If you are a joint degree student, either in Music or a joint RC-Honors student, you will come to Honors after being advised in your "home" unit.
In the evening of Day 2, you'll go to a computer session with the Honors Peer Advisors, who will help you learn more about Wolverine Access (U-M's student administration system) and will help you set up a class schedule for Fall Term.
Day 3: In the morning you'll come back to the Honors Office to confirm your schedule with your advisor and register for your courses. Generally, students depart before lunch.
