moc-up orientation

Moc Up 

Meet your fellow classmates and learn about UTC with this one-week, on-campus experience.

The Moc Up program is a one-week program designed to help students have a smooth transition from high school to college. Incoming freshmen are invited to come together to get excited about coming to UTC and become more familiar with the resources we have to offer students.

During the program, students will attend student success workshops with topics such as financial wellness, career services, campus engagement and academic success. They will participate in small group and large group activities designed to introduce students to each other and the UTC community.

Moc Up is an invitation-only program. 


  • Experience college through a free, one-week residential program 
  • Network and engage with other first-year students, current UTC students and faculty and staff members before college begins
  • Learn about what it takes to be successful in college including major and career exploration, financial planning, study skills and campus engagement
  • All meals, housing, entertainment and programming are offered at no cost to the student
