Orientation Dates

New Maverick Orientation has three different types of orientation programs to fit the unique needs of our new international students. Attendance is required at one of the following sessions for students (freshmen, transfers, and graduates) on an F-1 or J-1 visa.

Most international students will attend an orientation in August, however we offer two options for international students earlier in the summer for those who already reside in the US. Before choosing your orientation date, learn which program is better suited for you.


These orientations are for students admitted to UTA as transfer students or graduate students. These one-day sessions with include important information about immigration, working in the US, and transitioning to life at UTA and in America.
