First Year Students

Attending Orientation is the best way to acclimate yourself to life at TCU, become familiar with campus, learn about student life and register for your first semester of course work. First Year Orientation sessions are offered on-campus in June and August with an additional session in January for students admitted for the spring semester. All incoming first-year students are required to attend Orientation. Sessions fill on a first-come, first-serve basis so please reserve your spot as soon as possible.

We are not able to accommodate walk-up students at Orientation. You must attend your scheduled session.
