Winter Welcome


Planning to start your Mizzou journey with the spring semester? Winter Welcome Orientation will give you the tools you need to start strong.


This one-day orientation is for new freshmen, transfer students, military service members, and other nontraditional students.

At orientation, you will:

  • Learn about campus resources and policies
  • Get to know your future classmates
  • Get answers to your questions about attending Mizzou

Already registered for orientation? Log back in to the reservations site to follow your orientation and advising checklist.



You’ll have a one-on-one appointment with an academic advisor from your chosen academic unit (or a general studies advisor, if you’re still exploring majors) to choose your classes and get registered for your first semester at Mizzou. This meeting is separate from your orientation session, but you’ll sign up for both through our reservations site. Sign up for your orientation session as early as possible so that you can get your advising appointment scheduled.
