Family Orientation Schedule

Your Family Orientation program has been designed to be as informational and helpful as possible. Our goal is to provide you with the resources you need to help your student succeed academically and find their place in the UT Austin community.

Here's a brief overview of what you can expect during your Freshman Family Orientation session:

College Meeting

You will participate in a College Meeting with your student's college or school, where you will learn more about college requirements and expectations, degree plans and what your child can expect as a student in that college/school. You must attend the meeting for the college/school your child has been accepted to for the incoming year, even if they wish to transfer.

Choice Sessions

There will be many opportunities to hear about programs, services, and resources throughout Family Orientation. Check out the Choice Sessions, listed on the Schedule-At-A-Glance, which include many campus resources for you and your student. The choice sessions also include campus tours to give you a chance to explore the 40 Acres, learn more about the campus and experience some of its traditions!

Farewell

The Family Orientation program will conclude with a chance for you to say goodbye to your student.
