• CUSTOMS - New Student Orientation
    A Division of Student Affairs


If you'll be attending MTSU in the fall semester, for your convenience we have scheduled several different dates throughout the summer. The choice of the sessions is yours, but to receive the maximum benefits it is imperative that you attend the entire session. You cannot just come for scheduling; nor can you receive your class schedule before the assigned time. Reservations will be assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis, so be sure to register as early as possible.

If you'll be attending MTSU in the spring semester, the CUSTOMS is a condensed version of our summer program and will only be one day.
