UT Orientation Update
Due to the on-going concerns regarding COVID-19, UT Austin has decided to transition all new student orientation sessions (June through August 2020) from in-person experiences to an online format. View our online orientation webpage for details and updates. Orientation is REQUIRED for all new students to be able to register for classes.

Online Student Orientation Information

Attention incoming Longhorns:

We are excited for you to join the Longhorn family and orientation is the start of the journey. Orientation is required for all incoming fall admitted students and is designed to provide you with information about academic resources, campus resources and how to register for classes.

Due to the ongoing concerns of COVID-19, we have decided it is in the best interest of our incoming students and their families to transition all new student orientation sessions (June through August 2020) from in-person experiences to an online format. Your safety and well-being are our main priority. We also realize that these are unprecedented times filled with dynamic changes. We want to keep you as informed as possible regarding your online orientation, so we have updated our website with helpful information.

Please review the frequently asked questions web page for more information. Students will receive an email about the new online format and additional communication in the future about how to complete online orientation as your scheduled session nears.

We know you are excited to start connecting with other students and we are expanding opportunities for you to virtually interact with other Longhorns throughout the summer. If you have questions or need assistance, please contact us at nss@austin.utexas.edu. To view all New Student Services programming updates as a result of COVID-19, visit this page.
