Before choosing your orientation date, you need to know your options. If you are starting at UTA in the fall semester, you will enjoy a two-day orientation with the opportunity to participate in the Overnight Experience. If you plan to enroll starting in UTA’s summer term, you will receive a shortened one-day orientation.
This two-day session will fly by, and when you are done, you should have a fall semester schedule of classes, a great introduction to your new school, and several new friends! Be sure to bring your parents or family, too!
* International freshmen (students with an F-1 or J-1 visa) must attend the August 14-15 session.
Whether you will travel several hours or just a few minutes to orientation, make the most of your session with the Maverick Overnight Experience!
For those who participate, the Overnight Experience is the highlight of New Maverick Orientation! You will receive a linen packet, which includes sheets, blanket, pillow, and bath towel, so you only need to bring the following items:
NOTE: Limited rooms are available for parents and guests that would like to stay overnight. Students and parents/guests should pack separately as they will be assigned to different rooms in the residence hall.
The Overnight Experience is available for just $40 at all freshman orientations that occur in June and July.
Many freshmen get a head start on their college experience through summer coursework. This one-day orientation session gives you the basics as you quickly start classes after high school graduation.
