Honors CUSTOMS Information
CUSTOMS is the Middle Tennessee State University new student orientation program. CUSTOMS helps new undergraduate students make the transition into the university; prepares new students for MTSU's educational opportunities; and initiates the integration of new students into the intellectual, cultural, and social climate of the institution. All new students must complete this orientation in order to register for classes.
Information on how to register for CUSTOMS can be found on the main CUSTOMS page.
The Honors College at MTSU invites incoming freshmen to join us for a Zoom information session on March 23rd at 6:00 p.m. (Central time) to learn more about honors options and the next steps required to be a part of the Honors College at MTSU.
Register for the information session here!
Information for new Honors students can be found by viewing our videos, reading the Frequently Asked Questions, and reviewing the list of classes for the upcoming semester. If you have further questions please feel free to reach out to one of our Honors advisors.
