Welcome, future Longhorns! We're excited for you to join the Longhorn family.

The next step in your journey is to participate in New Student Orientation, where you'll get academic resources, campus resources and register for classes. It’s all at orientation, and it’s required for incoming students. 

We're looking forward to helping you get in the "Longhorn State of Mind" at New Student Orientation!
