On-Campus vs. Online Orientation

We understand that being a new transfer student can sometimes be overwhelming as you adjust to a new campus. To help with your transition, we have provided two program options to best meet your needs.

On-Campus Transfer Orientation

We offer three (3) 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.

  • Friday, May 17
  • Wednesday, July 17
  • Wednesday, August 14

Note: There is no fee for new transfer students to attend on-campus orientation. 


Registration for 2019 On-Campus Transfer Orientation is now closed. 

If you still need to complete your orientation requirement, please complete the online orientation. You may contact the Office of New Student & Family Programs at nsfp@tntech.edu or at (931)372-3245 if you have any questions about completing your enrollment to Tech.


Online Transfer 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 siginificant 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.
