Orientation

Information on January Orientation will be released soon.
We will have Orientation Leaders, First Year Experience staff, faculty/staff advisors to help you each step of the way. You will quickly find out what it means to be part of the Horned Frog Family.

Advising & Registration

This year (and hopefully ONLY this year) the Advising & Registration portion of orientation will be online throughout the month of June. During Advising & Registration, advisors will work with students to think about post-college goals, career paths, and courses needed to achieve those goals. In order to participate in this session, students will need access to a computer with internet from 10:00 am CST to 6:00 pm CST. A few days before their session, students will receive in their TCU email a detailed schedule with Zoom links to their advisors, Orientation Leaders and other resources.
