New Student and Family Programs

Welcome, Future Mocs!


We are thrilled to have completed another summer packed full of getting new Mocs familiar with and oriented to our campus. While our regular Orientation sessions are closed, you can still attend UTC by completing the Express Enrollment process.

For those who attended this summer, we hope you found it helpful and information. We have posted recordings of our sessions on the Fall 2020 Orientation site in case you want to refresh your memory on some topics or in case you missed a session you still want to see.  

We can't wait to see what our new Mocs will do at UTC!
