Welcome to Tyler!

We’re excited to invite you to our virtual New Student Orientation. New Student Orientation is mandatory for all newly enrolled first-time college students. We encourage you to join us for one of our live events, but you may also choose complete our online New Student Orientation module at your convenience.
