Academic Orientation Program

Congratulations on your admission to Michigan State University. We are excited that you are now a member of the Spartan family.

MSU’s required Academic Orientation Program (AOP) is designed to help you make a successful transition to MSU. During AOP, you will learn about MSU’s Undergraduate Learning Goals, enroll in courses, become familiar with campus resources, get a taste of campus life and see for yourself what it means to be a Spartan.

Since your parents play an important role in your college readiness, MSU has created a separate but concurrent Parent/Family Orientation Program (POP) with content geared to them. POP attendance is optional.
