Orientation for Spring Entry

Orientation sessions for spring-entry transfer and adult students are one-day programs held prior to the start of spring semester classes.

Friday, November 18, 2016
The orientation program on November 18 will be best for transfer students who can make a day trip to the University.  Be aware that there is a home football game on November 19 and hotel costs near the University will be higher than you would typically find.  If you would like to cheer on the Vols the day after your orientation, you may purchase football tickets (as available) at this link.

Friday, January 6, 2017
This session is only for transfer students who are not living on campus.

Monday, January 9, 2017
This session is only for transfer students who plan to live on campus. Students can begin moving into their assigned residence hall on Sunday, January 8, 2017.

The cost for spring-entry transfer orientation is $50 for students and $20 for family members and guests. Costs include all orientation programming, materials, and lunch on campus for students and guests.

There will be a $10 fee charged if you need to change your registration date or the number of guests you have attending. Refund requests must be made in writing at least ten working days prior to your confirmed orientation session. Please note that a $10 processing fee will be subtracted from your refund amount. Your request may be sent to newvols@utk.edu or mailed to:
