What is backpacking?

backpacking_advising_umich“Backpacking” refers to the process of reviewing the academic course guide to determine what courses you would like to take, along with what time you would like to take them. The purpose of backpacking is to understand how the registration process works inside Wolverine Access.

You will also be taught how to use a tool called “Schedule Builder” to create a potential schedule.  This process will be completed on Day 2 of Orientation with the CoE Peer Advisors.  When you return on Day 3 of Orientation, your “backpack” will be ready for registration.
