New Student Programs

The Office of New Student & Family Programs is dedicated to introducing incoming students and their families to the lifestyle, programs and opportunities available at UT Tyler in order to aid them in the transition process and integrate new students and their families into the UT Tyler community.  One of the primary functions of the office is to provide comprehensive orientation programs for new undergraduate students and their family members.  Sessions for students beginning their UT Tyler career in the spring semester are offered in January.  Sessions for students beginning in the summer or fall semesters are offered May through August.  New Student and Family Programs also hosts Swoop Camp, which is an optional extended orientation program for incoming freshmen that takes place in the summer.
