Welcome to Rocky Top, New Vols!

Congrats on becoming a Vol! We’re looking forward to welcoming you to campus in August. We invite you to share your excitement and thoughts abut coming to UT and how you are preparing to become a new Volunteer. Use the hashtag #utk19 on Twitter and Instagram!


What is Vol Update?

Vol Update is UT’s official student e-newsletter that highlights events, reminders, internships, resources, scholarships, and other important campus news. You will receive it every Monday and Thursday during fall and spring semesters. This summer, check your e-mail once every two weeks for special New Vols editions of Vol Update. Our goal is to give you information to prepare you for your first semester.

You’ve Confirmed Your Enrollment. What’s Next?

Now that you’ve confirmed your enrollment, it’s time to sign up for orientation. You’ll meet new friends and student leaders, discover campus resources, have your first meeting with your academic advisor, and register for classes. You should also encourage your parents or other family members to attend orientation with you. If you haven’t signed up for orientation yet, register here. If you have already signed up, you should receive information in the mail soon with details about your orientation session.


What You Need to Do Before Orientation

There are several things you need to do before orientation. Log in to your MyUTK account for details on these, as well as additional items you need to take care of before starting classes in the fall. You will need your NetID and password to log in to MyUTK. If you have trouble logging in, contact the OIT HelpDesk for assistance at 865-974-9900.



Get a Jump-Start on Getting Involved

Ignite is an exciting program that helps you learn about opportunities to get involved on campus and about life outside the classroom. You’ll also meet other new students and develop your leadership skills. You can choose between three Ignite programs—Summit, a fun-filled three-day retreat; Serves, a four-day service program; or Outdoors, a five-day outdoor leadership program. Learn more about each program and register.


Submit Your Immunization Form

The state of Tennessee has established immunization requirements for students attending state colleges and universities. As a new student, you must submit documents to the Student Health Center to prove you have the required immunizations. You should submit these forms prior to your scheduled orientation session or bring them with you to orientation. Details about immunization requirements can be found here.
