New Students



We are happy that you are joining the Jindal School of Management at UT-Dallas. Before you can attend classes, you will need to take care of several items including accepting your admission, attending orientation, reviewing your degree plan and registering. Please read the following getting-started information carefully.

Steps After Admission

Follow the Steps After Admission which will include attending orientation.


Meet with your academic advisor and register

  • Freshmen – Meeting with your academic advisors will be part of Day 2 of freshman orientation. They will discuss your degree plan and walk you through your first term registration on that day. (If you need to get in touch with them before then, feel free to do so.)
  • Transfer – Once you have been admitted to UT-Dallas, you are welcome to come and meet with an advisor and discuss your transferred coursework. You will also get an opportunity to meet with an advisor during your transfer orientation.

Know your responsibilities
