We have compiled a short list of common questions asked by students regarding transfer orientation. If you don't find the answer here, then let us know by using the "Contact Us" link!
Yes, we encourage students' parents/guardians come with them to Transfer Orientation. However, due to limited seating, we limit this request to 1 guest per student.
"Living and Learning Villages" have been established at many universities nationwide and provide an opportunity for students to get involved within their campus community. Each year TTU establishes a new "Village" focused around a common theme. Students living on or off campus are encouraged to participate. For more information, please visit http://www.tntech.edu/reslife/livinglearningvillages/.
If you are an incoming Transfer student starting TTU in the Spring semester then you may sign up for Spring Orientation once your admission to the University is complete. This is similar to our Fall Transfer Orientation session and is condensed to help new transfer students to quickly adjust to our campus. More information about Spring Orientation may be found at http://www.tntech.edu/sorientation/.
Advisement/registration sessions for transfer students are available by appointment only. Transfer students should contact their academic department for a personalized advisement and registration appointment. Advisement for the Summer and Fall 2013 Term begins on March 25, 2013 and continues through August 23, 2013. Students must be admitted before making an advisement appointment.
Currently, the Transfer Orientation is free for incoming transfer students and their guest.
