International Orientation

International Orientation


In response to the continued developments of COVID-19 and to support the health and wellbeing of our university community, spring Orientation programs will be offered in an online delivery format. Sign up is now open! We are excited to also offer a Virtual Family Orientation, a Virtual Resource Fair, and Virtual Office Hours on Tuesdays & Thursdays from 3-5 pm. For questions, please email orientation@utsa.edu.

As the excitement of starting your international experience settles in, many students may find they have lingering questions regarding academics, student services, housing and residence life, financial aid and much more. The new student orientation experience will answer many of these questions and prepare you for your first semester at UTSA.
