Welcome to your New Vol Orientation!


Attending Summer Welcome? We’ll send registered students all the details you need to know before arriving to campus three days before your selected date! Make sure to be on the lookout!

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

Students are required to participate in all orientation activities. This includes Virtual Advising, Online Orientation, and Big Orange Welcome. Plus, those entering in the summer or fall semesters will have the opportunity to attend Summer Welcome. An optional, one-day, on-campus experience for new Vols and families.

New incoming family members can experience various Family Orientation programs leading up to your student’s first week of classes. Make sure your student includes your information in their orientation registration to receive more details!
