New Graduate Student Orientation

Registration: Step-by-Step

    1. Confirm your eligibility to enroll

      Make sure one of the following is true: you have been admitted/readmitted for the exact term you are registering, or if you are a graduate student, you attended at least one term during the year before the term for which you are registering.
    2. Determine your myUTTyler ID and Password

      Your myUTTyler ID and Password allows you to register for your classes. You should have received an email after you applied that contained your myUTTyler ID and password. If you have lost or forgotten your username/password, contact Graduate Admissions (ogs@uttyler.edu) and they will resend the email. Usernames and passwords cannot be provided over the phone.

      The user id and password for logging into myUTTyler is the user id and password you also use to log into your Patriots email account. Activation of your Patriots email account is required for log in access to myUTTyler . Try logging in using those credentials and if you still experience problems, email the following information to IT Support and they will respond in a timely manner.
    3. Attend Orientation if you are a new student

      If you are a new student at UT Tyler, Fall orientation is a great place to start. Graduate Student Orientation announcements will be on the Office of Graduate Admissions home page each fall. If you can't make it to orientation in person, we have much of the information available for you in this online orientation.

    4. Meet with your advisor to begin your academic program planning
