Here is a checklist of things that you should aim to do after orientation.
Make final changes to your schedule during your add/drop period(s).
Pay your tuition.
Review the Academic Calendar to become familiar with important dates and deadlines.
Buy your books. You can look up required texts by class at the University Co-op.
Locate your classrooms.
Check your Interactive Degree Audit (IDA) to see how the courses you registered for during orientation will count towards your degree.
Contact your advisor(s) or other UT staff with any follow up questions you have thought of since orientation. Use the directory to find relevant contact information and be sure to review our email tips before contacting UT staff or faculty via email.
Look for organizations that might be of interest to you.
