Transfer Orientation Types
Transfer Experience is designed for students who are interested in the complete college experience. This full-day orientation program (8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.) 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.

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 email@example.com.
