Freshmen and Transfer Student Orientations
All new undergraduate students are required to attend university new student orientation sessions provided by the UNT Orientation and Transition Programs office.
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
Sessions fill up quickly, so register as early as you can.
Graduate Student Orientation
For graduate students, the Tolouse Graduate School's New Graduate Student Orientation is optional, but strongly recommended. You need to register in advance.
Some academic departments have their own orientation sessions. Read your admissions letter to see if your department requires you to attend an orientation. Contact your academic department or the International Welcome Center if you have any questions.
All music majors are required to attend the College of Music's orientation and placement exams at the time specified in their college admission letter. If your music orientation or exam is scheduled for the same time as your international student orientation, contact the International Welcome Center to register for an alternate international student orientation session.
