Welcome to Orientation

Register Today!

Your freshman year begins a whole new stage in life! The First Year Experience (FYE) at University of Detroit Mercy is designed to ease the transition into this important first year of college. All areas of the University collaborate to connect freshman students with our community. FYE components like Orientation, Common Read and First Year Convocation support and encourage you as you tackle the challenges of your first year—adjusting to a new place, managing time and workload, and starting new relationships. Along the way, you will get to know your classmates and gain new skills.

Orientation is required for all freshmen who will be starting classes in the fall and will provide you with the tools and information to make your time at UDM a success. Phase I is Student Orientation Advising Registration (SOAR) and Phase II is Prologues, Transitions & Viewpoints (PTV).
