To complete the course, login to Canvas using your assigned umich username and password. Once authenticated, you should be able to click this link and enroll in the course "Summer 2022 - Graduate Orientation." Once you enroll, the Orientation course will be available to you in your Canvas course list to access in the future.
COVID-19 Campus Policies
A mandatory vaccination policy for all three U-M campuses and Michigan Medicine is in effect. This policy applies to all faculty, staff, and students and was developed to protect our community from COVID-19 infections and provide for a safe return to campus. You are encouraged to view our website for additional information and answers to frequently asked questions.
How to Become Compliant with the Vaccine Requirement
To be in compliance with the vaccine requirement, individuals must report proof of vaccine by submitting information via the COVID-19 Vaccination Completed form.
Students in fully online/remote courses for the Summer semester may be exempt from the vaccination mandate with a signed attestation form.
The university will grant limited exemptions for valid medical and religious reasons. To be considered for a vaccination exemption, please complete the COVID-19 Vaccination Exemption Request form. Those who are granted exemptions will be required to submit a weekly negative COVID test before being on campus. For more information, visit the Vaccine Mandate Enforcement page.
Face Covering Policy
The University of Michigan announced an updated face covering policy. If conditions require a change, information will be shared with the campus community.
