Transfer Welcome Events

Greetings from Big Orange Country! We can’t wait to have you join us on campus. Our goal is to make sure you are ready to make Rocky Top your very own “Home Sweet Home” so we have been hard at work creating a Welcome Week schedule that will be most relevant for you as a transfer student!

Welcome Week is August 19-24! As a transfer student, you may find yourself wondering what events you should attend throughout the week. We encourage you to attend all events that are offered during the week in hopes that it will be the beginning of a solid foundation here at UT. We especially encourage you to attend the following events:

  • Sunday, August 19
    • New Student Picnic*
    • Class Photo*
  • Monday, August 20
    • Torch Night*
    • Night in Neyland/Rocky Top Rally*

For details and a full schedule of events please check out the Welcome Week schedule on your Volunteer Life app or click here.


You’re invited to Transfer Welcome!

Join us for a Big Orange Welcome just for transfer students. Learn about opportunities and resources to get connected to UT. This event will provide a more personal setting for you to interact and engage with other transfer students and to have your questions addressed. Use this opportunity to ask any last-minute questions you may have. Registration is requested for this event.  You will receive an email invitation closer to this event.


The flagship campus of the University of Tennessee System and partner in the Tennessee Transfer Pathway.
