Welcome to New Student Orientation

The University of Maine offers three orientation sessions for incoming students:

Spring Orientation is a one day event held in January for students starting in the spring semester. Invitations are typically mailed out in early December.

Summer Orientation is a two-day event held in mid-June for students starting in the fall. Programming for parents is also included. Invitations are typically mailed out in the spring to students who have confirmed their enrollment with the Admissions Office.

Fall Welcome Weekend is held the weekend before classes start in the fall and offers an abbreviated orientation for students who were unable to attend Summer Orientation as well as events and activites for all new students. Invitations are typically mailed out in the late summer.

Closer to each event, available dates will be posted below along with online registration and a tentative agenda. In the meantime, we encourage you to visit campus at any time!
