Again, welcome to Teachers College! We look forward to meeting you on Orientation Day!
“The most helpful part of orientation was getting to hear from my program's faculty. It seemed as though they really cared about wanting to get to know students, and wanted to be part of our TC experience.”
“Thank you so much for an engaging and thoughtful introduction to TC! I appreciate the welcome gift and the opportunity to ease into the day through morning programming. Every speaker was articulate, interesting, and well prepared.”
“I was accepted late, and being able to come on campus for the entire day allowed me to finalize my schedule, get my ID card, get checked for immunizations, and also meet the academic staff as well as other students. It went a long way towards easing my nerves about starting grad school!”
“The morning college-wide segment was excellent. It made me feel inspired, motivated, and made me feel confident in my choice to attend TC... Overall, I felt like the administration, faculty, and staff wanted to warmly welcome new students and encouraged them to speak up if they need help.”
“I liked the freedom to choose what programs I wanted to attend, rather than having everyone go to everything regardless of interest.”
All students are strongly encouraged to review the "Next Steps" checklist available on the Admitted Student Portal for more details, as there may be specific requirements pertaining to your student-status. Complete important items such as activating your UNI/TC email address, register for courses, submit insurance and immunization documentation, upload a photo for your student ID and confirm financial aid eligibility.
International Students are strongly encouraged to contact the Office of International Services for additional resources to help you begin your TC student experience. For students interested in living on-campus, please contact the Office of Residential Services (ORS) to learn how to apply for on-campus housing.
