Welcome to your New Vol Orientation!

As a new incoming Vol, you’ll participate in UT’s multiphase orientation experience. There are both in-person and virtual components of orientation, each designed to support you in your transition to UT.

Through New Vol Orientation, students will be required to participate in:

  1. New Student Advising
  2. Vol 101 (online orientation modules)
  3. Vol Essentials (required programs) during Big Orange Welcome.

First-year Vols entering in the fall have the opportunity to attend Vol Summer Visit, an optional, one-day, on-campus experience for new Vols and their families. Registration for Vol Summer Visit is currently open for all students who have confirmed their enrollment and registered for New Vol Orientation.

New incoming family members can participate in various family programs leading up to the first week of classes. New Vols: Make sure to include family contact information in your orientation registration to stay up-to-date with program offerings.
