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.

The Transfer Orientation office is currently operating remotely. If you have any questions, you can reach us via email at [email protected].

Transfer Orientation Registration

Transfer Orientation for students entering in Spring 2021 is now available. Transfer Orientation for Spring 2021 admitted transfer students will be held in a completely online format which will share important university policies, information, and resources, then work with academic advising to register for classes.

All virtual Transfer Orientation sessions have closed. At this time, admitted transfer students who intend to enroll for the Spring 2021 semester will complete informational modules in eLearning to fulfill the orientation requirement.

More information will be posted for students admitted for Summer and Fall 2021 in late January.

Transfer Orientation Steps to Complete

To complete the required eLearning modules:
