Pre-Orientation Online Modules

Completing your Transition and Orientation Prep (Rocky T.O.P.) Modules are your first step in preparing for a successful orientation session.

These modules are mandatory for all incoming first-year students to complete before they check into their orientation session and provide useful information designed to supplement and enhance your orientation experience. You will learn essential information to better understand academics at UTK such as courses, the advising process, and specifics about the college your major falls into – Majors by Academic College or Majors A-Z. You will also learn more about vital campus resources such as housing, dining, and parking – just to name a few –  that will help you navigate your first year with ease!

Rocky T.O.P. Modules are now available! You will receive an invitation to complete these on Canvas after registering for orientation.


When modules are available to you, you will be able to access them through Canvas, your online course portal.

You will need your UTK NetID and password to log-in to Canvas. Need help getting those?


Looking for Language Placement Exams?

All incoming first-year students who have had at least two years of language in high school should take the foreign language placement test in that language. The placement test should be completed at least three days prior to your orientation session. Please visit https://lrc.utk.edu/placement/ for more information and to access your placement test.
