If you are already registered for orientation, check your inbox before you come! Our office will be sending you a few emails about your trip to campus. These will include information about parking, your overnight stay (if applicable), and other next steps to prepare for orientation. You’ll receive an email two weeks before your session and another one week before your session.

Welcome to the Big Orange Family.

New Student and Family Programs helps new Vols and their family members make the transition to UT. We work with students from the day they’re admitted through their first year on campus. We also provide supportive and engaging programs to help families stay connected with their student’s college experience.

We invite you to look through our website and learn about the resources, programs, and services we offer. If you have any questions, please let us know.
