New Students - Summer Orientation

Your Manchester University experience begins in June with Summer Orientation.

The Summer Orientation schedule includes a welcome, photos for student ID cards, housing and health services information, residence hall tours, a visit to the campus store, sessions about Student Financial Services and student life, a complimentary lunch, major specific meetings, course registration, and an information fair.

Parents, guardians, family, and other guests are welcome and encouraged to attend. They can attend a special session planned for them while you participate in other orientation activities.”

Dates and Reservations

All incoming first-year students are required to attend a Summer Orientation session.
The Summer Orientation Days are scheduled to take place on June 5, 18, 21, 26, and 29.

Placement Exams

It is very important that you review the Placement Exam Information. All students are required to take a mathematics exam. All placement exams are administered online through ChetNet, and students are required to complete the exams prior to Summer Orientation.

ChetNet Access

You will need to access your MU ChetNet account during Summer Orientation, so please make sure you can login to ChetNet BEFORE your Summer Orientation session. See instructions here. If you have any problems, please contact your Admissions Counselor via email or at the Office of Admissions at 800-852-3648.

Students with Disabilities

For students with disabilities, leaving high school to enter college brings changes in regard to educational rights and responsibilities, according to the law. Unlike high school, disclosure of disabilities is the responsibility of the student. In other words, you must let us know about a disability in order to receive reasonable accommodations or support services. Such disabilities include, but are not limited to, physical disabilities, visual or hearing impairments, learning disabilities, Asperger's, and Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD).

Students requesting accommodations or other support services are required to submit documentation to verify eligibility for protection under the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act.
