Colorado Mesa University offers Student Orientation programs to prepare new students for their educational careers at CMU. The programs are designed to acquaint you with the campus, students, faculty and staff. Students must bring a government issued photo ID to Orientation.

Registration for fall 2019 Orientation sessions will open on MAVzone on February 15, 2019.

At Orientation, you will:

  • Meet with an academic advisor and register for classes
  • Learn about student services and how to get involved on campus
  • Become familiar with campus

Pre-Orientation Testing

Certain courses require tests prior to registration. Depending on your SAT or ACT score, you may need to take placement tests to determine your courses. If you need to take placement tests, testing is strongly recommended prior to Orientation. If you are unable to do so, you will have the opportunity to test on the day of Orientation. Not sure if you need to test?
