The half-day session of Spring Orientation is a wonderful opportunity to become familiar with Tennessee Tech's campus, faculty, staff and students. During your time on campus students will meet with representatives from TTU’s Financial Aid, Bursar (Business Office), and Scholarship offices to discuss tuition and fees. Students will also meet with departmental faculty and register for classes (if necessary). Students must arrange this meeting for registration and advisement prior to arriving at Spring Orientation. Please refer to the Academic Department List for advisor contact information.
Students and guests will receive a detailed itinerary at check-in. Below is a brief outline of the half-day Spring Orientation session for Transfer and New First Year Students and their guests:
- Spring Orientation Check-In begins at 12:00 pm central time in the Roaden University Center (RUC)
- Opening Meeting
- Informational sessions
- Campus Tour
- Free Time (this will allow students to handle any necessary items while on campus)
*All events/times are subject to change.
Please be aware that lunch is NOT provided on the first day of SOAR. Attendees will need to arrive ready to participate. If arriving early, Swoops Food Court (located on the Ground Floor of the Roaden University Center) will be open with dining options for students and guests. Also, please plan to be here until 4:30 pm central time. If registering for the upcoming semester, times may vary based on academic departments so we ask students and guests to plan accordingly.
