Phase 2: Online Pre-Orientation

Starting in July, you will participate in UT’s Online Pre-Orientation program. During this required online experience, you will learn about our community and our history, discover resources, and prepare for success in and out of the classroom.

You will receive a link directly from us to access and complete the Pre-Orientation. You will not have to download any additional software either! Stay tuned for additional details this summer.
