Why Attend Orientation?

Orientation will help ensure you’re ready for your first year on campus.

Be sure to register for an orientation session sooner rather than later.

During orientation, you will:

  • Meet other students and learn more about UT.
  • Learn about campus resources, including academic support and campus involvement.
  • Figure out the logistics (housing, parking, transportation, dining, etc.).
  • Learn to use online systems, such as MyUTK.
  • Meet with your academic advisor and register for classes.
  • Pick up your VolCard (student ID).
  • Visit your residence hall.

The flagship campus of the University of Tennessee System and partner in the Tennessee Transfer Pathway.
