New Patriot Orientation

Welcome to The University of Texas at Tyler!

The Department of Student Life & Leadership strives to ensure all UT Tyler students make the most of their college experience from acceptance through graduation.

Our orientation programs are designed to help future UT Tyler Patriots become competent, self-reliant learners who are devoted to and engaged in their higher education experience. 

New Patriot Orientation will:

  • Inform new students of campus policies and procedures.
  • Help with the academic and social transition to UT Tyler.
  • Prepare students to make reasoned and well-informed choices.
  • Foster a sense of community by acclimating future Patriots to the UT Tyler campus and surrounding community. 

New Patriot Orientation is designed to be an engaging and fun experience that will prepare students for their first year at UT Tyler.
