Orientations for spring 2022 incoming students will be offered in person. To ensure the health and safety of our attendees, guests and staff, UTA requires that every attendee present a negative COVID-19 test result from within 72 hours of arrival at orientation. In lieu of this requirement, an attendee may opt to present their vaccine card to waive the testing requirement. For more information, please review our safety plan.
