Online Orientation


All new students participate and complete UT’s Online Orientation program. From academic success to student life, Online Orientation introduces valuable resources and opportunities available to you as a member of the Volunteer family.

Online Orientation is available NOW! Make sure you’re registered for orientation, and you’ll receive a direct link to get started via your confirmation email.

Here are a few important tips to consider:

  • All new incoming Vols are required to complete Online Orientation 
  • It only takes about an hour. Plus, you don’t have to complete it all at the same time (up to you)! You’ll be able to log back in as many times as you’d like, and the system will pick up exactly where you left off.
  • You’ll use your NetID and password to log in 
  • Make sure to have all sections completed before the first day of classes on January 23rd! You’ll know you’ve completed Online Orientation once you submit your responses to the survey at the very end. 

If you run into any issues with your Online Orientation, don’t hesitate to contact orientation@utk.edu.

Those students who have not completed their Online Orientation before the deadline run the risk of a hold being placed on their account. This hold may prevent them from making changes to their schedule and registering for future semesters.

Nope! Students will have the opportunity to save their progress and return to complete remaining sections at another time.
