First-Year Orientation

Congratulations on selecting Texas Woman's University for your college experience! At Orientation, you will have the opportunity to learn about the great programs and services at Texas Woman's University.



Due to the ongoing Covid-19 concerns, the university has decided it is in the best interest of our incoming Pioneers and their guests/families, as well as our campus community, to shift from the traditional on-campus orientation model to an online format for the 2020 summer sessions. Your safety and well-being are our main priority at this time.

After completing the brief online orientation module, you will be transitioned into Academic Advising, Course Selection, and Registration of Classes. An advisor will be assigned to you to assist with course selection and registration processes.

While this summer may look a little different than our previous orientation seasons, we will still be offering you opportunities to engage with our current students, faculty, and staff through a variety of methods.

  • During the month of July (if federal and state restrictions have been lifted), we will be hosting one-day optional drive-in sessions to provide an on-campus Pioneer experience through interactive sessions and tours. Please check your TWU email for additional information regarding July sessions.
  • In August, an expanded Pioneer Camp (TWU’s version of Welcome Week) will be offered to provide additional information and resources that you might have missed during a traditional summer orientation session.
  • Please make sure you are following us on Instagram and Twitter to learn additional engagement opportunities throughout the summer.

Finally, we are aware that you might experiencing difficulty with technology and accessibility during this time. Rest assured we have developed a contingency plan to assist you if needed. If you are needing assistance, please send an email to the Orientation team or leave a voice mail at 940.898.3626. An orientation team member will respond to meet your needs.

For any issues with logging into TWU Gmail, please email the Technology Service Desk or call 940.898.3971.
