Congratulations on choosing the College of Science and Engineering at the University of Minnesota! The CSE Student Services team is looking forward to meeting you during orientation this summer.

Now that you have confirmed your enrollment, there are a few things you need to do before you can register for an orientation date.

Activate your University Internet ID

Complete the Student Internet Account Initiation online form to activate your University of Minnesota Internet account.

Be sure to keep a record of your Internet ID and password. You will need this information often as a University of Minnesota student.

Complete the New Student Checklist

Once you have confirmed your enrollment, you should complete the New Student Checklist as soon as possible. You can access the checklist on the Orientation & First-Year Programs (OFYP) website. Access to the New Student Checklist is granted after you have paid your confirmation fee to the University of Minnesota. Please note, confirmation fees are not processed after business hours or on weekends, and access to the Checklist can take up to 48 hours once the fee is processed.

Please note: During this process you will be asked to report any AP/IB/CIS/PSEO or other credits you have earned or anticipate earning. Be sure you have this information handy when you complete the checklist.

Transfer students: You only need to report information that does not appear on your official transcript(s) or that has not already been submitted to the Office of Admissions.

PSEO students:
If you participated in the PSEO program at the University of Minnesota, keep your UCard. You will not be issued a new one. The card you currently have will continue to serve as your University ID. If you would like to purchase a new UCard (with a new photo) you can do so through the UCard office.
