Summer Orientation

Summer Orientation is a two-day event held in mid-June for new first-year and transfer students starting in the fall. Programming for parents is also included. Invitations, including online registration information, are typically sent out in late April to students who have confirmed their enrollment with the Admissions Office.

For students who were unable to attend Summer Orientation in June, you may sign up for a campus tour at https://go.umaine.edu/visit/campus-tour/ in the months of July and August. We will conduct an Orientation Tour which will cover vital to do items for students starting in Fall 2017.  In completing the online registration, please be sure to indicate “Orientation Tour” on the special accommodation section.
