Undergraduate Orientation is a one-day program designed to introduce new students to all things USM. Whether you're coming straight out of high school or transferring from another school, this one-day program will give you the chance to:

  • meet other new students
  • meet current students, faculty, and staff
  • tour the campuses
  • discover the abundant resources available to you as a new USM student
  • provide you the chance to meet with an academic advisor who will review any college-level work you have and guide your course choices for your first semester here
  • register for your first semester classes

Graduate students will have their orientation facilitated by their individual programs.
