This is an exciting time as you enter the UTEP College of Engineering. During your Engineering Orientation session you will walk away with an overwhelming amount of information but will be guided to focus on:
- the College's expectations and resources to reach them
- the academic advising process and the support provided by professional & peer advisors
- Student success workshops to support the transition into the College of Engineering
How to Register for Orientation
After you have been admitted to the University, you can register for one of the above sessions through the Office of New Student Orientation . If there is an extreme situation why you can not attend an orientation session, please contact us so we can make accommodations. We encourage everyone to attend a session as soon as possible to have more options of classes to choose from.
New Student Orientation
As an incoming freshmen, advisors aim to place you in the highest and most appropriate math course based on TSI Assessment and/or by exams or dual credit courses you have taken. You will also be advised into classes (including UNIV 1301) that will greatly impact your first semesters of your college career.
Transfer & Early College Students Orientation
Transfer and Early College students can expect to get advised based off of credit shown on transcripts received by the University. For this reason, it is important to submit official transcripts when getting admitted.
