We are looking forward to helping thousands of students transition to UT Austin this summer during orientation. As social distancing and on-campus space density recommendations continue, our priority remains the health and safety of our community. In order to reduce the spread of COVID-19, all orientation sessions (June-August) will be conducted fully online for Summer 2021. Registration for all sessions, including Summer School, will open April 1.​ 

Orientation Registration Open Dates 

Spring Orientation Closed
Summer School Orientation April 1, 2021
Transfer Orientation (June/July sessions) April 1, 2021
August Orientation TBD July 2021

You must be an admitted student and have paid your enrollment deposit in order to register for orientation. Check MyStatus to verify if you have paid your deposit.

Registration closes 10 calendar days prior to the start of each session. (For Spring and Summer School Orientation, registration closes six calendar days prior to the session.) Register early as space is limited and sessions are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Sessions do not have waitlists.

If you are admitted to the fall semester and are unable to participate in any of the June/July sessions, there is an August Orientation session. Registration for August Orientation opens in July, and students who did not participate in a June or July session will be sent an email with August Orientation registration information. 

All orientation sessions will continue to provide robust programming for incoming students, including August Orientation. All colleges will be participating in the August Orientation sessions. You will be able to interact with your college, academic advisor, and register for classes during August Orientation, consistent with June/July sessions.
