Welcome to New Student Orientation

Yancy Freeman headshotAll of us in Chattanooga are excited that you chose UTC to continue your education. Normally I would be saying this to you in-person, but things are a little different this year. I know the changes you’ve had to make this year have caused feelings of uncertainty and disappointment.

I can relate on a personal level. My family was looking forward to watching my son participate in UTC’s commencement ceremony in May. We’ve had to make other plans to celebrate his graduation and I can assure you, UTC students, faculty and staff are doing the same for your Orientation.

We’ve been hard at work to make sure that this new orientation experience prepares you to be a Moc. I’m confident the enrollment teams will bring you a virtual experience that’s welcoming, informative and fun.

2020 hasn’t looked like what we thought it would, but please know that the entire Mocs family believes in you. Because that’s what we are, a family. No matter the distance, we support each other. You’re not alone, you’re forever part of the flock now. We’re right beside you, ready to help you fly.

Let's get started

The steps below are required for new students to complete enrollment at UTC.

  1. Look for your Mocs Box in the mail! Your box is filled with information about campus resources and we added some blue and gold swag too! You should receive your Mocs Box at least a week before your scheduled orientation session. If your mailing address has recently changed, please email your updated address to us right away!
  2. Check your UTC email for complete instructions. Where prompted, sign in to your Orientation account to access your modules. Complete these modules prior to your scheduled orientation session.
  3. Attend a virtual chat with your academic advisor on the day(s) of your Orientation session. You will receive an email with the date, time and link.
  4. Stay tuned for more information about Orientation activities! Monitoring your UTC email address during this time is critical to staying up-to-date on any announcements regarding Orientation and other information on starting classes at UTC.

We're here for you!

If you have questions before your Orientation session, don't forget that we are here for you.
