Before Moving to Campus

Register for TRNS 201: Transitioning to Rocky Top

Designed especially for transitional and transfer students, TRNS 201 can help you make a seamless transition to UT. You’ll develop a personal plan of study connected with your goals and identify and engage in experiences outside the classroom to help connect you with resources.

Buy Your Parking Permit

All students with a vehicle must purchase a parking permit. For more information, see the Parking and Transit page.
