New Student Orientation

Congratulations on your admission to the University of Texas Medical Branch! Every part of our campus community — the faculty, the staff, and your fellow students — is looking forward to welcoming you to campus.

Before starting at UTMB, all students are required to complete an Online Orientation. You will receive an email from Enrollment Services approximately one month prior to your start date with a link to the orientation and directions on how to get started. 

Some programs are also required to attend an In-Person Orientation on the Galveston Campus. Due to COVID-19, UTMB is currently considering alternative options for our July and August Orientations and the In-Person portion of Orientation may be moved online as well. Please refer to the communications from your Student Affairs Office for more information.
