Transfer Orientation

About Transfer Orientation

In order to assist you with your transition to UNT, all new students are required to attend an orientation session, including transfer students. During orientation, you will have the chance to meet with faculty and staff, connect with current students, learn about university resources, and receive academic advising in preparation for registering for classes. You will leave orientation understanding our university's spirit and traditions, as well as what to expect as you embark on your college experience.
