Contact 1: Office of Admissions

MARTIN, Tenn. – Any students planning to begin their college career at the University of Tennessee at Martin in the fall 2016 semester who have not yet registered for classes must attend Student Orientation and Registration on July 15. SOAR is required for all incoming freshmen, and students will not be permitted to register for classes outside of these sessions.

The cost to attend SOAR is $45 per student and $20 for each additional person. No tuition will be due until the start of the fall semester. SOAR registration is first-come, first-served, and space is limited. Students must have received a tentative or final acceptance letter to register. Visit for more information and for registration instructions.

Each SOAR session begins with check-in and an administrative fair from 7:30-8:30 a.m., with an official welcome to follow. At 9 a.m., students will meet with their orientation leaders and begin a rotation of informational sessions on academic options, financial aid and scholarships, housing, student life and other important topics.

Students will begin registering for classes at 1:30 p.m., at which point parents and families can attend a parent panel session.

If extenuating circumstances prevent a student from attending the July 15 session, contact Mary Wiggins, Office of Student Engagement, at 731-881-7740 as soon as possible.

For information on the admissions or registration process, contact the UT Martin Office of Undergraduate Admissions at 731-881-7020 or by email at
