For Transfers

Welcome to the University of Tennessee, Knoxville! We’re glad you are joining us.

Why Choose UT?

A short video featuring our Transfer Orientation Assistants sharing their reasons for choosing UT.

What is “Pre-Advising”?

The purpose of this pre-advising resource is to provide you with the information you will need to begin your academic career at UT.  This information is a supplement, not a replacement, for your meeting with an academic advisor in your college.  Upon completion of this unit, you should understand the general education requirements for the university and the degree requirements for your college.

Depending on your college, once you have completed this information session, you will have the opportunity to either schedule an appointment with an advisor or meet with an advisor at your orientation.

A Bit of Advice

Before you get started, our Transfer Orientation Assistants have some advice for you!

Let’s Begin

Please take the time to get some note paper and a pen ready.  This would also be a good time to print out your academic plan.

You’ll need to know your NetID and password before you can begin the pre-advising “homework.”

Note: If you need more information on NetIDs and passwords, including how to find your NetID and how to change your password, you can find it on the Pre-Orientation site for incoming freshmen.

Once you know your NetID and password,  it’s time to leave this page and log in to the “Student Orientation Homework” site to begin working your way through the pre-advising “homework.” At the end of certain homework sections, you will be asked to complete a short quiz.  Each quiz question must be answered correctly before moving on and before completing the homework.

Good luck, and we’ll see you at orientation!
