supporters at warrinerCMU welcomes supporters to come to New Student Orientation for a day of learning and fun! While students will spend the day concentrating on the specific needs of their upcoming year, their family members and/or guests will attend special sessions learning how they can best support their students during their academic career.

Highlights of the program include:

  • An opportunity to learn how to support your student's success
  • A guided tour of CMU's campus
  • An explanation of university policies and procedures including parking permits, financial aid, billing, tuition and banking
  • Lunch at one of our residential restaurants

Registration takes place under step four on the student orientation registration portal. There is a $25.00 fee per adult in attendance, and this is billed to the student's account.

Since program space is limited, New Student Orientation cannot accommodate friends who wish to go through the orientation process. 

Those who would like to request an accommodation due to a special need or condition should contact the Orientation Office at (989) 774-6629 at least two weeks prior to a student’s orientation date.
