Attend New Student Orientation
Once you are accepted, you will be provided with information about orientation for new students. Orientation is your first step in successfully transitioning to UNT. All new undergraduate students are required to attend an orientation session.
Orientation sessions for new students enrolling in the Fall semester are scheduled throughout the Summer. Freshmen Summer orientation is a 3-day experience. Sessions for new students enrolling in the Spring semester are 1-day sessions scheduled in December and early January.
At orientation, you will:
- meet with your academic advisor, who will help you prepare to register for classes
- get with a class schedule for the upcoming semester
- learn about academic and campus resources
- meet with faculty and staff from your college or school
- start building relationships with other students
- learn about UNT's traditions
Register for orientation through your MyUNT account. Sessions fill up quickly, so register as early as you can.
Participate in New Student Events
Connect with other students, prepare for life at UNT and have fun with welcome events designed just for you.
Eagle Camp is an optional next step that welcomes the entering students to UNT each year with the purpose of giving them an opportunity to have fun, make friends, and learn more about life at UNT. Eagle Camp is open to any new students who will be attending UNT in the fall.
First Flight Week and Spring Soar
First Flight Week is UNT's official welcome program for incoming students. It takes place before the fall semester. Spring Soar is an extension of First Flight that takes place before to the spring semester. This week is designed to help new students begin their college experience on the right foot. From programs that prepare you for the upcoming educational opportunities to programs where you get to let loose and meet fellow peers, there is something for everyone! First Flight is mandatory for all new freshmen.
UNT Premiere Weekend
UNT Premiere Weekend is a chance for incoming freshmen to get an insider's view of college life on campus and in Denton. Hands-on activities will expose you to new areas of UNT's campus while also providing opportunities to meet other new students in small group settings.
If you haven't visited UNT yet, now's the perfect time to take a student-led tour of our beautiful campus. Let UNT's knowledgeable Eagle Ambassadors show you around campus, then take an individualized tour of one of our colleges or schools.
Take the TSI Assessment
UNT requires all new students to take the Texas Success Initiative (TSI) Assessment before registering for classes, unless they qualify for an exemption. This assessment measures college-level readiness in reading, mathematics and writing. The TSI Assessment is not used in admissions decisions at UNT, but is necessary for adequate preregistration advising. For more information on the TSI Assessment, please visit UNT Learning Center's TSI web page or call at 940-369-7006.
