Can my parents/guardians come with me to Transfer Orientation? (back to top)
Yes, we encourage students' parents/guardians to come with them to Transfer Orientation. However, due to limited seating, students may only register a maximum of 2 guests.
I am not sure what the "Living & Learning Villages" are, how do I get more information? (back to top)
"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/.
I am a transfer student, but I am starting TTU in the Spring semester... (back to top)
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 quickly adjust to our campus.
How do I get advised if I am a Transfer Student? (back to top)
Advisement/registration sessions for Fall admitted 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 2015 Terms begins on April 6, 2015 and continues through August 21, 2015. Students must be admitted before making an advisement appointment.
What are the attendance fees for attending Transfer Orientation? (back to top)
Currently, Transfer Orientation is free for Fall 2015 admitted transfer students and their guest(s).
I am living on-campus this Fall, when can I move in to my Residence Hall? (back to top)

I am registered to attend Transfer Orientation, but now I won't be able to attend. How can I reschedule to another available session? (back to top)
One Transfer Orientation session is available at the beginning of the Fall semester. If a student is unable to make it to the schedule session, they will not be able to reschedule. We encourage students to make plans accordingly and attend the scheduled session prior to the start of their upcoming admitted semester. Students who need to cancel their reservation may do so by Contacting Us.
I no longer plan on attending Tech this Fall and want to change to another semester... (back to top)
Students who no longer plan on attending TTU for the Fall should contact the Office Of Admissions to change their admitted semester. You may contact the Office of Admissions at email@example.com with your Tech ID Number, Full Name, and intended semester.
Will I have to pay my tuition at Transfer Orientation? (back to top)
Students who register for classes at Transfer Orientation will have 24hrs to pay their tuition/fees or setup a payment plan. Students who have registered for courses prior to Transfer Orientation will need to confirm their schedules and pay their tuition/fees by 11:59pm CST on Wednesday, August 12 for the Fall 2015 semester.

Students who do not pay & confirm by the above deadlines will have their schedules purged and will be required to re-register for the upcoming semester.
