Transfer Orientation Information

New transfer students starting in the summer or fall semester will receive an invitation via email in March containing information on Transfer Orientation. To receive information, new transfer students must be admitted to the University for the upcoming summer or fall terms. If you need more information on how to apply to Tennessee Tech as a Transfer, please visit our Undergraduate Admissions site or contact the Office of Admissions at

Students will not be able to complete Transfer Orientation until they have been fully admitted to the University and received their orientation invitation.

We ask all students admitted to the University to login and access their Tech student email prior to registering for on-campus orientation or accessing our online transfer orientation. All orientation and other campus information will be communicated to this email account. For instructions on how to determine and access your campus email, visit

On-Campus vs. Online Orientation

All new transfer students to Tech must complete orientation as part of their enrollment process to the University. As a new transfer student, you have two options for orientation:

  • Attending a one-day, on-campus orientation
  • Completing online orientation

To better understand each program and which program may be the best fit for your transition to Tech, please review the information provided below.

  • On-Campus Orientation

    We offer two (2) on-campus orientation sessions for new transfer students. Transfer students will receive an orientation invitation in April providing instructions on how and when to register for one of these on-campus sessions. For more information about this option, please visit our Transfer Orientation Agenda site.

    • Wednesday, July 22
    • Wednesday, August 12

    Note: There is no fee for new transfer students to attend on-campus orientation. There is a $15 fee for each guest registered to attend. 


  • Online Orientation

    In your orientation invitation, you will be provided instructions for our online transfer orientation option. This option provides transfer students with a brief introduction to the University, offers insight on campus resources you will have access to, and provides a glimpse into student life at Tech.

    This program is designed for incoming transfer students who:

    • Live more than 100 miles from campus
    • Are transferring from another institution with 30 or more credit hours
    • Are returning to school after a significant break in their education
    • Have full-time work or family commitments
    • Are planning to take online classes only
    • Students usually complete online transfer orientation within 45 minutes to 1 hour.


Orientation Registration & Completion

Registration for on-campus Transfer Orientation and Online Orientation will be available starting in April. 

Admitted students will receive information in mid-late March regarding how to register for and complete their orientation. For questions, please Contact Us!
