Academic Orientation

The Academic Orientation Program is designed to assist new students and families with the transition to University life by providing essential information and helping students meet new and continuing students, faculty and staff. While at Academic Orientation, students meet with an academic adviser and register for the first semester of classes. Each summer, there are several sessions from which to choose, with a special session designed specifically for transfer students. There is also a one-and-a-half-day session in January for all new students who start spring semester. Academic Orientation is required for all freshmen. Though orientation is optional for transfer students, it is strongly encouraged. Because TCU has an institutional commitment to new students both in and out of the classroom, curricular programs and services such as academic advising, tutoring service and the Adams Center for Writing are highlighted in the Academic Support and Services section of this catalog.
