To help prepare new students for their educational careers here at Colorado Mesa University, we offer Student Orientation programs. The programs are designed to acquaint students with the CMU campus, students, faculty and staff, go over important academic and social topics, and assist with the advising and registration for their first semester classes. Please read on for more information about the program and how you can register
Orientation dates for students starting the Fall 2013 include:
We strongly encourage you to sign up for the earliest possible orientation date since classes fill up quickly.
Register for orientation through MAVzone.
All new incoming, Colorado freshmen are required to attend Student Orientation. Out-of-state freshmen are strongly encouraged to attend, but not required. Students from outside of Colorado have the option to register for classes over the phone by setting up an appointment with our Academic Advising Office at 970.248.1177 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Transfer students are strongly encouraged to attend a Student Orientation program. Since their needs are generally different than those of a first-time student, they are not required to attend an orientation program. Those who choose to attend and register for a program at least three weeks in advance will have their transfer evaluation ready at their program date. Those who do not attend should contact the Center for Transfer Services at 970.248.1232 for assistance.
Orientation is $15.00 for every person attending, including family and guests. This is a non-refundable charge billed directly to the student's account. If you would like to change the number of guests attending Orientation, please inform the Admissions Office at least one week in advance of your scheduled program
Orientation check-in begins at 8:15 am in the University Center Ballroom (number 35 on the campus map, with the program starting promptly at 9 am and wrapping up around 3 pm. Please reference your registration confirmation letter for program specific details.
