Next steps for admitted freshmen

Congratulations on being accepted to UNT!

If you have questions about what you should do between receiving your acceptance letter and attending your first day of classes, don't worry, we have you covered.

Don't forget to:

Orientation is your first step in successfully transitioning to UNT

Our Freshman Orientation programs scheduled through the end of July will be offered virtually and in-person. All new undergraduate students are required to attend an orientation session. For more information, visit the Freshman Orientation page.

At orientation, you will:

  • Meet with your academic advisor, who will help you prepare to register for classes
  • Get with a class schedule for the upcoming semester
  • Learn about academic and campus resources
  • Meet with faculty and staff from your college or school
  • Start building relationships with other students
  • Learn about UNT's traditions

Register for orientation through your MyUNT account. Sessions fill up quickly, so register as early as you can.

Participate in new student events

Connect with other students, prepare for life at UNT and have fun with welcome events designed just for you.

Eagle Camp

Eagle Camp is an optional next step that welcomes the entering students to UNT each year with the purpose of giving them an opportunity to have fun, make friends and learn more about life at UNT. Eagle Camp is open to any new students who will be attending UNT in the fall.

First Flight Week and Spring Soar

First Flight Week is UNT's official welcome program for incoming students. It takes place before the fall semester. Spring Soar is an extension of First Flight that takes place before to the spring semester. This week is designed to help new students begin their college experience on the right foot. From programs that prepare you for the upcoming educational opportunities to programs where you get to let loose and meet fellow peers, there is something for everyone! First Flight is mandatory for all new freshmen.

UNT Admitted Students Day

UNT Admitted Students Day is a chance for incoming freshmen to get an insider's view of college life on campus and in Denton. Hands-on activities will expose you to new areas of UNT's campus while also providing opportunities to meet other new students in small group settings.

Tour campus

We look forward to meeting you and showing off our beautiful campus! We invite you to schedule an in-person or guided virtual tour or speak with one of our current student Eagle Ambassadors to get an insider's view of everything UNT has to offer. Send us an email, and we'll connect you with a student today!

Take the TSI assessment

The Texas Success Initiative (TSI) is a state law that requires Texas public institutions to determine college readiness in English language arts and mathematics for all degree-seeking undergraduate students. All incoming freshman and transfer students, for both on-campus and online courses, must provide proof of TSI exemption or submit TSI Assessment scores before they will be allowed to register for courses at orientation. The TSI Assessment is not used in admissions decisions at UNT but is necessary for adequate preregistration advising. For more information on the TSI Assessment, please visit the Office of Advising Services' TSI web page or call at 940-565-3363.

Get a head start with college credits by exam

You can get a head start on earning your bachelor’s degree at UNT even before enrolling in your first class as an incoming freshman. By completing Advanced Placement (AP) courses and exams, College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) subject exams or International Baccalaureate (IB) exams, you can earn academic credit and test out of some UNT courses. This can help you earn your degree faster and start your career earlier than other students.
