Undergraduate Transfer Orientation

Congratulations on your admission to UT Dallas! One of your first steps toward a successful transition to UT Dallas is to register for and attend Transfer Orientation. At Transfer Orientation you will learn about UT Dallas resources, meet with academic advising, and begin the process of registering for classes.

Transfer Orientation registration will close one week and three days prior to the orientation date or when the date reaches seating capacity. Orientations will reach capacity quickly and are filled on a first come, first served basis. In the past, transfer orientations have closed over a month in advance due to reaching seating capacity.

Transfer Orientation – Spring 2020

Registration for spring 2020 Transfer Orientation is closed. Please review our Transfer Orientation FAQ page for next steps if you have not registered or attended a Spring 2020 Transfer Orientation session.

If you were not able to attend a Transfer Orientation for spring 2020 and would like the information that was presented at Transfer Orientation, our office will host an optional event on Wednesday, January 8, 2020, 5:30pm – 7:30pm. Welcome Wednesday is a free event that provides a shortened version of the Transfer Orientation presentation covering topics such as university policies and procedures, campus services, and facilities. Welcome Wednesday is open to all students (i.e. international, second bachelor, first time freshman, transfer, and non-degree seeking).

Students with the spring 2020 Transfer Orientation hold should complete the Transfer Orientation Supplement model in eLearning. Students will register for classes after all holds are removed and the student meets with their academic advisor. Please note that attending Welcome Wednesday will not satisfy the international orientation requirement.

If you have questions or concerns, please call Transfer Student Services at 972-883-6170 or email us at [email protected].

Orientation Communication

Students who pre-register to attend Transfer Orientation will receive session information by email. All email communication will be sent to the student’s UT Dallas email address.
