At orientation you will meet your academic advisor, register for classes, learn about student services and become familiar with campus.

All incoming, first-time students from Colorado are required to attend orientation. 

Out-of-state and transfer students are strongly encouraged to attend, but not required. Out-of-state and transfer students not attending an orientation should contact IRIS to schedule an appointment to register for classes over the phone. 

As you prepare to make CMU your home away from home, we encourage you to dive in, get involved and make the most of your college career.

Get ready for college-level classes
