New Student Orientation Confirmation

As soon as you reserve your seat we will send you a confirmation e-mail that includes your orientation date, location of the event and parking information. This confirmation will be sent to your UTRGV email address, so if you have not yet activated your account please do so immediately. Go to https://myaccount.utrgv.edu for more information.

Provide Documentation for Bacterial Meningitis

All new students under the age of 22 are required to submit evidence of receiving the bacterial meningitis vaccination (administered within the past five years) before you can enroll. Students will not be allowed to register without providing proof of meningitis vaccination or exemption. Please bring documentation to your scheduled orientation session for review.

Reschedule an Orientation Date

If you cannot attend your scheduled orientation date, just reschedule your orientation date through your my.utrgv.edu account. Enrolled students who did not attend their scheduled orientation session will have to attend a make-up orientation session and will be charged the orientation fee.
