Congratulations on your admission to the University of Montana and welcome to Griz Nation! Our Orientation programs will prepare you for a smooth transition to UM.
All new students are required to attend an Orientation and will be charged a mandatory Orientation fee along with tuition and other fees.
What You Will Do at Orientation
During Orientation you will meet new friends, learn about the social and academic transition from high school to college and the services available to you on campus, and get an idea of what campus life will be like!
- Meet with an advisor and adjust your course schedule.
- Get your Griz Card, which is your student ID. Your Griz Card grants you access to your dorm room, allows you to check out books from the Mansfield Library, and get into the Campus Recreation facilities-just to name a few of its many uses.
- Learn how to take advantage of the many support programs UM offers to help you be a successful student.
- Experience the Food Zoo and enjoy some of the delicious variety of food offered on campus.
- Learn how to utilize the online Academic Planner and course catalog and map out an academic plan for future semesters.
