Make a successful academic, social, and personal transition to your university experience with our orientation and transition programs. Review checklists, learn about deadlines, and discover UTM’s supports and resources for new students. 


Summer Options

Start early with summer events, such as UTM Head Start, a series of interactive, discipline-specific sessions led by faculty, librarians, and staff; the Summer Transition Program for Students with Learning Disabilities; and New Student Advising.

EagleConnect is a new Pre-Arrival Transition Program, run through the CSE. New students are put into Eagle Squads, which are new student communities. These communities, housed on Quercus, are overseen by upper year student leaders, who can provide insight and experience during this transition. 

Each week, students are given new and valuable information such as deadlines, to-do items, and other tips for a successful transition into UTM. 

Students are automatically enrolled into the program, making their access to this information immediately available to students once the program launches in June.
