Preparing for Orientation

Students on mall - 300

Welcome to the College of Science and Engineering!

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 and are planning to join us in the fall, there are a few things you need to do before you can register for an orientation date. Please see below for more information about your next steps. 

Activate your University Internet ID

Visit this website 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. Access to the checklist will be available beginning April 1 for new freshmen, and April 8 for new transfer students. Once the checklist is available, you can access it on the Orientation & First-Year Programs (OFYP) website.

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 before you enroll in courses this fall. Please 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.

We are excited to see you on campus this summer, and we look forward to partnering with you on your academic journey!
