Making the transition
Orientation is your first step toward transitioning to UNT. At orientation you will receive academic advising, register for classes and interact with current students. Several other First-Year Experiences are available throughout the academic year to aid in your transition.
Incoming GTF Scholars and/or ECHS graduates are strongly encouraged to attend designated Freshman Orientation sessions that will have information and activities specifically designed to give you a jump-start on your transition to UNT.
