ECHS New Student Orientation
ECHS Students: With the support of the Enrollment Services division, the ECHS Academic Success Center is here to support your transition to the University as you finalize your studies at El Paso Community College. Two ECHS New Student Orientation sessions are held per year; one in the Fall, to support ECHS seniors who will be starting at UTEP in the Spring, and a session in the Spring for all ECHS students who will start over the next Fall term. Traditional seniors are encouraged to register for an Orientation session during the Spring semester of their Senior year.
We strongly encourage you to consider the information on this page carefully, and to be on the lookout for our campus visits with the assistance of your ECHS counselor. This page will be updated every semester, with new dates and deadlines for the next ECHS New Student Orientation session. See you soon!
Spring 2024 Orientation
This orientation session will be held for students who will be starting at UTEP in Fall 2024 as high school seniors. You must complete the ApplyTexas process in advance of your orientation session, with a deadline of January 31, 2024.
Your UTEP ECHS Program Coordinator/Manager will be scheduling a presentation to share information about New Student Orientation, the Goldmine System, and to confirm your major. For more information on selecting your major, and for a complete list of available programs, please visit UTEP's Academic Catalog.

Attention Class of 2024
There will be more orientation sessions for you to attend throughout the summer of 2024. However, we would really like to encourage you to sign up for one of the three above. Remember that you will probably be signing up for upper-level classes with very limited capacity, and it is in your best interest to register to classes early during one of these sessions.
If you have any other questions or concerns, please contact our office at email@example.com.
