Freshman: I'm accepted! Now what do I do?

Next steps for admitted freshmen

Congratulations on being accepted to UNT!

If you have questions about what you should do between receiving your acceptance letter and attending your first day of classes, don't worry, we have you covered.

Don't forget to:

Attend New Student Orientation

Admissions Update: Our Freshman Orientation programs scheduled through the end of July will be offered virtually and the fee has been reduced to $105, with only $50 due when you reserve your session.

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

Eagle Camp

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 Admitted Students Day

UNT Admitted Students Day 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.

Tour Campus

We look forward to meeting you and showing off our beautiful campus once we're able to safely resume campus tours. Until then, see what UNT is like by experiencing campus virtually. You can also speak with one of our current students to get their take on UNT. Send us an email and we'll connect you with a student.

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.
