Connect Session

Get oriented to campus by attending an in-person Connect Session orientation. These personalized sessions last about 30 minutes and are required, unless you provide the documentation for any of the following exemptions:

  • You've completed at least 15 credit hours at an accredited US college with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or above.
  • You've completed a bachelor's or graduate degree from an approved English-speaking college.
  • You're an approved apprentice from Ford, General Motors, Chrysler, Visteon, or another company.
  • You have a valid guest student application from your home institution.

If you're exempt, you're encouraged—but not required—to attend.

Please note, these sessions are for students only; guests will be asked to kindly wait outside of the lab during this student experience. Parents and family are encouraged to attend Parent and Family Orientation instead.

Meet your Student Ambassadors

Our Student Ambassadors are current students who provide campus tours, Connect Sessions and special events to help you feel at home.
