Information for Incoming Students

Dear Class of 2024,

We hope you are having a great summer and are excited about getting ready for orientation in August. You will be required to attend orientation Aug. 6-7, 2020. On Monday, Aug. 10, the annual ASDA golf tournament and freshman welcome cookout will be held at Lake Caroline. This is a time to meet upperclassmen, faculty and staff of the dental school.

Here are a few things you need to know about orientation week.

  • You will be required to park in the stadium parking lot. There are shuttles/buses that can provide transportation, although most students prefer to walk. Dress attire during orientation will be a collared shirt or polo-style shirt and dress slacks for men; and a dress or dress slacks and blouse for women and comfortable walking shoes.
  • During orientation, you will be required to purchase your supplies and instruments, and receive assignments for lockers. You will hear presentations from the Office of Research, the Office of Records and Registrar, the Office of the Associate Vice Chancellor, the Office of Academic Affairs and the Office of Student Affairs. You will also hear from the Office of Academic Support.
  • General orientation will be conducted online via Canvas for fall 2020-2021 from July 13-Aug. 7. This message will provide you with the technology portals you must use to receive institutional, technical, and school related information throughout your education at UMMC.

We look forward to seeing you at orientation.
