Activate your CMU Global ID
Your Global ID is each student's unique identifier included in the admittance packet sent from the Admissions Office. The packet will also contain your temporary password that must be changed when you first log in. 

  • NOTE: Your Global ID is the first part of your cmich.edu email (smith1ab, for example).
  • Your CMU student ID is a six digit number and is not the same as a global ID.

Reserve an Orientation date

Space for each orientation session is limited and is assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis. Once CMU has received and processed your enrollment deposit, you will be able to reserve an orientation date. You will need your CMU Global ID and password to access the registration system. This reservation process will take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete. 

Complete the CMU Math Placement assessment

The CMU Math Placement will help decide what mathematics courses to enroll in at CMU and prepare you for future success. This is a free online assessment. 

Check your CMU Email Account Often

All official University communication is conducted through your '@cmich.edu' email address. Make a habit to check your CMU email several times during the week.
