New Student Orientation
Make a smooth transition to life at Tennessee State University. Immerse yourself in TSU’s campus culture, academic programs, and social scene by taking advantage of New Student Orientation programs. Learn about the excitement and challenges you’ll encounter during your first year, including academic expectations and student life.
Before the start of the fall or spring semester, you and your parents and family members can participate in New Student Orientation sessions about financial aid, registration, advisement, and campus safety and security. You’ll also make new friends, begin to form relationships with TSU’s faculty and staff, and take a campus tour.
Once you’re admitted to TSU, freshmen can register to attend one of our New Student Orientation programs and transfer students can obtain academic advisement and register for classes.
Also, remember to review the Destination TSU Checklist or make hotel and travel arrangements if you’re coming from out of town. When you attend, be sure to bring your registration confirmation and a notebook and pen. Wear comfortable clothing and good walking shoes.
