Information for Transfer Students

We’re excited to welcome you into the UGS community. If you attended another four-year college or university or a junior/community college and then applied for transfer admission to The University of Texas at Austin, you are considered a transfer student. Transfer students should complete or consider all the items listed on the New Students page to prepare for their first semester at UT Austin.

Attend New Student Orientation

Attending New Student Orientation is mandatory. All new transfer students and all students who have been admitted to UT Austin after successfully completing the Coordinated Admission Program (CAP) must attend orientation. Transfer orientation is designed specifically to meet the needs of incoming transfer students.

Attending orientation will help you get acclimated to campus; you will meet with a UGS academic advisor, learn about campus resources, and register for your classes with assistance from advisors.

Visit the orientation page on the New Student Services web site for orientation dates and registration information.

Check your Registration Information Sheet

Before you come on campus, please access your Registration Information Sheet to check for any bars that may prevent you from registering for classes. Your advising bar will be cleared when you meet with your academic advisor at orientation.
