UTM announces dates for new student events

The University of Tennessee at Martin announced its dates for first-year and transfer students to come to the campus to get acclimated, learn about the university and register for the fall 2024 semester.

SOAR is required for all incoming first-year students. Students can register for SOAR through the myUTMartin portal.

In-person orientation dates will be held in the Boling University Center, while online sessions will be held over Zoom.
