register for orientation by june 14


New Student Orientation starts July 9, so be sure to register by June 14 in order to reserve your space.


Registration for Orientation is provided on a first-come, first-served basis, and we encourage you to register as early as possible in order to reserve a space. If you can’t find the date you prefer, we recommend that you continue to log in to the registration system every day to check for cancellations.


Once you’ve registered, your next step will be to complete Pre-Orientation online, which should take 1 hour. The deadline to complete Pre-Orientation is two weeks prior to your orientation date.


If you have any questions, you can visit the FAQ for first year students or transfer students, or email orientation@ucmerced.edu. You can also read more about Orientation in our last newsletter.
