Transfer Orientation Types
Transfer Experience is designed for students who are interested in the complete college experience. This full-day orientation program will give you the opportunity to connect with other students within your college or major, learn about academic resources for your degree program, and discover involvement opportunities to engage in UTA’s vibrant campus life. The Transfer Experience will immerse you in the Maverick Spirit right from the start of your journey.

We know some transfer students are coming to us with significant amounts of transfer credit (65 hours or more), have work/family commitments (working 35 hours per week), or define themselves as non-traditional. While we encourage all transfer students to attend the full transfer orientation program, we offer a Transfer Express program designed to meets the needs of students who meet one or more of the following criteria:
- Transferring 65 or more credit hours to UTA
- Age 25 years old or older
- Work 35 or more hours per week
This half-day session (8:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.) will cover the basics and empower you to complete the remaining items necessary for you to start classes and succeed as a Maverick. This session review content related to bill payment, academic college information, and transfer services, but does not include programming on student services (i.e. parking, financial aid, career development, etc.) or campus life (i.e. student activities, cultural programs, leadership development, etc.).

An online only orientation may be used in rare circumstances to satisfy the orientation requirement. Our online program consists of the pre-orientation modules and will introduce you to the UT Arlington campus and help you learn about valuable campus resources and involvement opportunities.
The online only orientation exception is designed for transfer 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 exemption 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
