Waino Wahtera Center for Student Success

First-Year Students

As you prepare for your first year at Michigan Tech, we know that you have plenty of questions. Our weeklong Orientation program is designed to answer your questions, introduce you to campus resources, and give you a smooth transition to life at Tech.

Get ready for Orientation by reviewing the following pages. You’ll find information about course registration, campus living, your summer Reading as Inquiry assignment, and more—everything you need to be prepared for your arrival.


Student-athletes participating in fall sports will be able to attend Student-Athlete Orientation on Thursday, August 23, 2018 from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. in the Memorial Union Building Ballroom.  You will be automatically enrolled in Student-Athlete Orientation if you are on a fall sport team roster.  In addition to the day long program, you will also attend selected programs during Orientation Week that will be built into your practice schedule.  

Student-athletes participating in Spring sports will attend the entire Orientation Week.
