The two-day New Vols Experience: Orientation gives incoming students and guests an opportunity to become familiar with UT’s campus, faculty, staff, and students. During your time on campus, you’ll learn about student life, college finances, academics, and student resources, and register for your first-semester classes.

When coordinating travel arrangements, remember that all orientation dates are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Plan to arrive on campus between 7 and 7:30 a.m. on the first day for check-in and to remain on campus until 5 p.m. on the second day.

Please do not schedule any additional activities during orientation as you must be present for all activities, presentations, and advising.
