New Student & Family Programs

Welcome to TU

Our orientation programs welcome over 5,000 students and 3,000 family members each academic year. We are so excited to welcome you, too!    

Register for Orientation

Orientation will be held online this summer for all students. Students can register their parents or family members when they register for orientation. See orientation dates and information on registering: 

How will online orientation work?

  • Student must complete their pre-orientation online 48 hours prior to their scheduled orientation date.
  • On their scheduled orientation date, students will meet in a group with an Orientation Leader. Transfer students will also build their schedule and meet with an advisor. If you have not attended orientation yet, register for the final orientation on August 19, 2020
  • Building Community sessions will be held throughout July to further connect with other incoming students and campus partners. Check the Freshmen, Transfer, or Freshman Transition Program pages for the schedule of sessions.

More information about orientation will be communicated via email and on our website. Please let us know if you have any questions by contacting our office at 410-704-2309 or by email at
