Your fUTure starts here! Online Orientation opens Dec. 1!
As a new student, you will have the opportunity to get to know your campus prior to your arrival by completing UT's online orientation program. This program has been specifically designed with YOU in mind! From navigating academics to getting involved on campus, this program will help you familiarize yourself with the many resources available to you as a Spartan. The online orientation program for all new incoming students (residents, commuters and transfers) starting in Spring 2024 will be available Dec. 1. You can access online orientation through your MyUTampa account, and it must be completed prior to your arrival on campus.
