Various UT Orientation programs are presented depending on whether you are admitted to the fall semester, spring semester or summer school. See the descriptions below to find the orientation program you should participate in.

Freshman Orientation

June/July 2022

Freshman Orientation is required for students admitted to the fall semester. For Freshman Orientation, different sessions are offered depending on your college or school. Find your college/school below to see which orientation sessions you can participate in. If you cannot participate in a June/July session, an August session is offered before classes begin. You only need to participate in one orientation session (either a June/July or an August session).

Space is limited, so register early as sessions are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration for each orientation session closes at 11:59 p.m. CST 10 calendar days before the start of each session (see the dates below). You will need to go to the registration page to see which sessions still have space available. Registration for Freshman Orientation 2022 will open in Spring 2022.
