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.


Students admitted to the CONHI Accelerated Online (AO) Orientation program will complete a specialized CONHI Accelerated Online (AO) Orientation in Canvas.

Graduate Orientation

New Maverick Graduate Orientation is an optional program designed to help new master's and doctoral students learn about UTA's resources and services to support their writing, research, and study.

This orientation does not take the place of required departmental orientations for graduate students. The New Maverick Graduate Orientation supplements those programs to support your success.
