• CUSTOMS - New Student Orientation
    A Division of Student Affairs

Welcome to CUSTOMS

IMPORTANT: IF YOU ARE COMING TO CUSTOMS ON JULY 29: Instead of arriving at the James Union Building tomorrow, as our instructions tell you, you need to come to the Student Union Building for registration. A water main leak over the weekend has flooded the James Union Building, making it impossible for us to use the building. Also because of this change, do not park at the James Union Building. We recommend parking at the Rutherford Lot so the Raider Xpress can take you where you need to go. Please spread the word! Thank you for your cooperation and we're sorry for the last minute change.


CUSTOMS is the Middle Tennessee State University new student orientation program. CUSTOMS helps new undergraduate students make the transition into the university; prepares new students for MTSU's educational opportunities; and initiates the integration of new students into the intellectual, cultural, and social climate of the institution. In a nutshell, CUSTOMS shows new students the ropes on being a student at MTSU.

CUSTOMS is designed a little differently for each type of new student. Please select your classification below to begin your CUSTOMS journey!
