New Student Programs

Making the transition to college can be both exciting and challenging for new students (and their families). The University of Tulsa is perfectly sized to offer students new experiences and the freedom of self-discovery, while providing the comfort of a close-knit college community.


In the office of New Student Programs and Services we work all year to help students succeed quickly at The University of Tulsa and to successfully integrate into the academic, cultural and social experiences available across campus.

Our year-round student orientation programs are designed to help students quickly acclimate to college life and make connections that will support them throughout their time at TU.

Our team is available to help with any questions through email at or on the phone at 918-631-2707.

New Student Orientation

The best stories have great beginnings. Start yours off right with StartTU – our week-long experience designed to prepare new students for the challenges and opportunities that distinguishes a TU education.

StartTU links every new student with one of our exceptional Orientation Leaders. Through StartTU, new students discover pivotal information about campus life, discover campus organizations and services to help them succeed academically and professionally, and likely make some lifelong friendships along the way.

Register for StartTU (at no additional cost) through ‘CaneLink.


ImpactTU is a short-term fall leadership workshop for first-year students at The University of Tulsa.

This six-week institute highlights key skills and competencies leaders can put into practice as they transition into our campus community. This six-week program includes group discussions, presentations by students and campus leaders, weekly giveaways and a free meal at each meeting.

Students can expect to learn more about ImpactTU during Orientation and the first weeks of the new semester.
