Freshman | Fall Orientation After You Attend Orientation

Sign up for Roadrunner Camp

Roadrunner Camp is an action-packed, two-day camp experience offered exclusively to incoming freshmen. It features a high ropes course, dance party, swimming, and of course, a whole LOT of Roadrunner spirit! Roadrunner Camp is August 17-18 at the T Bar M Camp in New Braunfels, Texas. The $125 camp fee includes transportation, lodging, five meals, a camp t-shirt and all activities. Sign up online by July 28!

Complete Your Required Online Health Modules

Freshmen are required to complete health education modules (accessible on ASAP) related to Alcohol Education and Sexual Assault Prevention. Part 1 is due by the first day of fall classes. 

Buy or Rent Your Textbooks at the Rowdy Campus Store

The Rowdy Campus Store is the only official UTSA-affiliated bookstore. As such, the staff work closely with UTSA professors to ensure that required class materials are in stock. If you're taking classes on the Main Campus, you'll purchase or rent your books through the Main Campus location; if your classes are Downtown, you'll get your books at the Downtown Campus location.

Check Your Preferred Email Account

Be sure to regularly check your preferred email account, as it's where we'll send official messages about financial aid, payment deadlines and registration. You can change it to a different email anytime on ASAP.

Submit Final Transcripts

Don't forget to submit your final transcripts (high school, dual credit, or college) to the One Stop Enrollment Center, as applicable. Until we receive all final transcripts, you'll have a hold on your account preventing future registration. If you're a freshman, your Financial Aid also can't disburse until we receive your final high school transcript.

Order Your Parking Permit

Parking permits are required on UTSA campuses. You can order them through UTSA’s myParking portal on ASAP. There are a variety of permits you can choose from to suit your needs. To learn more about the permit types, visit our parking permits webpage.

Pay Tuition and Fees

The tuition and fee payment deadline is August 15, 2017. You must pay by then or you will be dropped from your registered classes and charged a $100 late fee. If you've been awarded financial aid to help pay your bill, the earliest it can be applied towards your account balance is August 12.

Sign Up For Housing & Meal Plan

A meal plan is required if you're living on campus and have less than 48 completed credit hours. View Meal Plans for selection options.

Get Your UTSA Card

Your UTSACard is your university ID. It grants you access to your selected meal plan, dining dollars, rowdy dollars, residence halls, athletic events and more. You should have received your UTSACard at your Orientation experience. However, if you didn’t get your card, you can visit the Campus Services office at your earliest convenience. Be sure to bring a government issued photo ID (like your driver’s license) and your Banner ID number. If you lost your card, visit the Campus Services office for a replacement. Please note, you will be charged a $10 replacement fee.

Register For Your Classes

If you didn't have a chance to register at Orientation, be sure to sign up for classes on ASAP. View this video from Academic Advising for instruction.

Sign Your Family up for the Family Association

Encourage your family to stay connected by becoming a member of the UTSA Family Association. They distribute a monthly e-newsletter, provide scholarships to new students, and host UTSA Family Weekend.

Attend Roadrunner Days

Be sure to save the date for Roadrunner Days, a series of special events from August 18-27 that are designed to welcome you to UTSA. One of those events is Convocation on August 21st, which is required for all freshmen to attend.
