Plan Your Trip

Orientation Dates

If you are a transfer and military-connected student (such as active duty, veteran, reserve, or National Guard), you are eligible to attend one of UTA’s Veteran Orientations, or you may attend a traditional transfer orientation session. Military connected students entering UTA directly from high school, but attend one of our Freshman Orientations.

VETERAN ORIENTATION:

This Orientation is designed to ensure you have a clear understanding of your Veteran’s benefits, how to certify, and information on the services and resources that are available to you here at UTA. As a thank you for your service, Veterans choosing to attend the Veterans Orientation program will not be charged the Orientation Fee.

TRANSFER ORIENTATION:

Many veteran students choose to attend a traditional transfer orientation. However, please be aware that you will be charged the traditional $60 orientation fee for attending a Transfer Orientation. Visit the Transfer Orientation page, for more information.

ONLINE ORIENTATION:

An online orientation may be used in rare circumstances to satisfy the orientation requirement. Our online program will introduce you to the UT Arlington campus and help you learn about valuable campus resources and involvement opportunities.

The online orientation program is designed for students whose travel to campus is difficult or impossible (such as active duty military members, out-of-state students, etc.). UTA believes that if you are attending classes on our campus, the most beneficial orientation for you will be one of our on-campus programs. Therefore, online orientation requests for busy lifestyles or work are not approved.

Transfer students who are interested in completing orientation online must submit a detailed, written request to orientation@uta.edu.
