Welcome UTCS class of 2025! This website is for incoming CS students attending online orientation in summer 2021. The general UT orientation website can be found here: orientation.utexas.edu

Important! Pre-Advising Presentation

Prior to your Day 1 advising session, you will need to watch the pre-advising presentation. It provides a complete overview of what courses you should take, how reserved courses work, and your orientation advising experience.
Important! UT Math Assessment: Deadline June 7th

All incoming CNS majors must take the UT Math assessment before June 7th!

Advising Meetings 

All CS students will have a mandatory small group advising session on Day 1 and mandatory individual meetings on day 2. You will receive your complete CNS schedule with Zoom links by the Friday before your orientation. Please make sure you check your junk email folder if you do not receive yours! On Day 2, we will only have 15 minute appointments available for 1-1 time, so we will only focus on your fall schedule during those meetings. On Day 3, advisors will be available through email and then on Zoom during live registration. 

Transfer Students

CNS Transfer Orientation is available July 15-16th, 2021. Registration is available here. Academic advising will take place individually on Day 1 of orientation, with small group registration on Day 2.
