Fall Orientations

Each fall, two orientations are held prior to the start of classes that students are encouraged to attend. The New Graduate Student Orientation is an orientation designed to help graduate students new to UT get information on a variety of topics to help them get situated. The New Graduate Teaching Assistant/Associate Orientation is for graduate students who will be teaching assistants or associates for the first time. This orientation includes information on teaching practices and working with students.

For fall 2018, the dates for the orientations are the following:

  • New Graduate Student Orientation—Tuesday, August 14, 8:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m.
  • New Graduate Teaching Assistant/Associate Orientation—Thursday, August 16, 8:00 a.m.–11:00 a.m.

We will ask you to RSVP for the New Graduate Student Orientation, if you are planning to come, to help us plan. If you have decided not to come to UT, you can use the RSVP form to decline the invitation and also let us know whether or not you are coming to UT at all.

If you are a new graduate teaching assistant or associate, and you are planning to attend the New Graduate Teaching Assistant/Associate Orientation, please RSVP so that we can plan.
