About Orientation

Orientation is your first step in successfully transitioning to UNT. All new undergraduate students are required to attend an orientation session. For freshmen, orientation is a 2-day experience designed to help students become acclimated to the university. For transfer students, orientation is a 1-day experience with the same goal.


Register Now for Parent & Family Orientation
Our optional Freshman Parent & Family Orientation is available now! Guests must pre-register on the Freshman Parent and Family website to attend, no walk-ins will be accepted. The Freshman Parent & Family Orientation registration and itinerary are separate from the students.

Please note: filling out the parent information section on your student's MyUNT portal does not register you for the Parent & Family Orientation.

During orientation, you will have the chance to meet with faculty and staff from your respective college or school, new classmates, and current students. Orientation is a time for you to learn about campus resources, receive academic advising in preparation for registering for classes, and learn about UNT's traditions! You will leave orientation with a class schedule for the upcoming semester.
