Freshman Orientation Dates
Fall Freshman Orientation
Freshmen entering UTA in the fall semester will enjoy a two-day orientation experience. This session will review great information about your new university, help you connect with other students, and get you ready to start classes in the fall! You have the choice of attending that session virtually or in-person on our campus. The face-to-face orientation is highly encouraged, but please select the date that best fits your schedule and comfort level.
All on-campus orientations prior to August 5 will include a REQUIRED overnight stay in Vandergriff Hall.
If you are in the UT Austin Coordinated Admission Program (UT CAP), you must attend an orientation prior to July 1.
*Registration for Fall 2022 will open in mid-February
Summer School Freshman Orientation
Many freshmen get a head start on their college experience through summer coursework. You will attend a two-day session, and you have the choice of attending that session virtually or in-person on our campus. Be aware that there are two summer terms, so be sure to select a session that occurs before your summer term begins. All on-campus orientations prior to August 5 will include a REQUIRED overnight stay in Vandergriff Hall.
SPRING FRESHMAN ORIENTATION
This one-day virtual session will fly by, and when you are done, you should have a spring semester schedule of classes, a great introduction to your new school, and several new friends! Be sure to have your parents and family join you, too!
*Registration for Spring 2022 will open in mid-October.
