New Student Orientation

Welcome to The University of Texas at Tyler Health Science Center!

Congratulations on being admitted as a student to the Health Science Center at UT Tyler! We welcome you and want to provide you an orientation to our campus. We provide this online orientation so that students who are working or are too busy to travel here for an orientation will still be familiar with our campus culture.

New Student Orientation

How it works  

Every student is required to complete new student orientation. Important information about the university, student services, academic resources, and policies create a solid foundation to successfully complete a graduate degree. Following acceptance to a program, each student will receive an email with login information.

Step 1: Complete Online Modules  

Use the button below to login to Canvas and complete the New Student Orientation course modules. Credentials to access Canvas should be included in the welcome message that you receive upon acceptance into the degree program.

Step 2: RSVP for a Required In-Person Orientation  

Students must attend a one-day in-person session to meet with program representatives and members of the academic affairs, financial aid, registrar, and compliance teams. Information about upcoming dates are made available approximately two months prior to the start of each semester. For information visit the orientation information page here.

Step 3: Complete Registration for Classes

Following completion of the required online and in-person orientation sessions check your course registration and payment/financial aid arrangements.
