Spring Orientation

A prerequisite for your success!

To succeed in college you need to be familiar with and understand how to use the resources available outside of the classroom. Spring Orientation is a half-day orientation for new transfer and first-year students starting in the spring semester. The program is designed to make the transition for admitted students to WMU a simple one. You will have the opportunity to get your WMU Student ID, attend presentations from Residence Life, Financial Aid, Student Activities and Leadership Programs, and Career and Student Employment Services and more!

Prior to attending Spring Orientation, you are encouraged to arrange a meeting with your academic advisor to select courses and register for classes. You can find the contact information in your admission letter or below:
