Parking & Transportation 

Individuals attending transfer orientation should park in Eagle Lots 39, 54 or 55. Do not park in reserved, metered, or garage parking. We recommend that you place your orientation confirmation card in the dashboard of your car to show proof of orientation registration. If you have misplaced your confirmation card, please print the confirmation email that will be sent the week leading up to your orientation session.

Disability Accommodations 

Students who intend to register with the Office of Disability Accommodation (ODA) under the terms of ADA/504, or who request accommodations during their orientation session, should check the appropriate boxes on their orientation registration materials. In addition, please contact ODA two weeks prior to your orientation date by calling 940-565-4323, TTY callers 1-800-RELAY TX. Visit the ODA website at www.unt.edu/oda.

Transfer Express

Transfer Express is an evening orientation for new transfer students. We realize that many transfer students work full-time or have other obligations during the day. Transfer Express is designed to accommodate students who can't dedicate a full day on-campus for orientation. The focus for Transfer Express is academic advising. While you will be able to attend some success sessions during the check-in process, the majority of your schedule will be spent with your major department.


Wednesday, August 23, 2017 from 3-8pm


The fee for Transfer Express is $63.
