In response to the continued developments of COVID-19 and to support the health and wellbeing of our university community, all in-person Orientation programs scheduled for summer will be moved to an online delivery format. Students who are signed up for an in-person orientation will be automatically moved to an online orientation. Those who paid a deposit will have it automatically applied to their online orientation fee. Please note if your family signed up for a Family Orientation, we do not have an online option at this time and you will not be charged for this program. For questions, please email orientation@utsa.edu. We will continue to update this page regarding orientation as we continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic.
