Congratulations on the achievements that have led you to this step in your journey. New Student Orientation marks your entrance into the UWM community.

About the Program

New Student Orientation is an overnight program that occurs during the summer months. In addition to learning about campus resources, receiving academic advising, and registering for classes, our one day program offers time to learn about UWM's traditions, socialize with new students and experience campus life. All students are required to attend the program with other incoming students. Parents and family members are welcome to attend our Family & Guest Orientation that runs concurrently to the student program. Families and guests will learn about campus resources to help better support you at UWM.

After you take the Placement Tests, submit your New Student Confirmation Deposit, and complete your University Housing Contract and deposit or Housing Exemption Form you will receive an invitation to register for New Student Orientation.
