After considering this unprecedented situation, guidance from the state, and the time sensitive nature of planning for Orientation, the decision was made to move UCF Orientation completely online.

Plans and processes for our students are still being solidified, but we will rely heavily on university-wide technology to continue providing an engaging and interactive program.

To allow more time for prepare for this shift the April 17 Orientation will transition to April 24.

Until we follow-up with more details we do ask that all involved campus partners continue to make themselves available for our established Orientation dates. We will provide more guidance in the next week.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we prepare to welcome our new Knights and their families. Please visit orientation.ucf.edu for more information.

O-Team

  • We are outlining the O-Team role in a remote environment. How you can still serve incoming students and family members as they prepare to make UCF their home.
  • Until we follow-up with more details we do ask that you continue to plan to be available for our established Orientation Summer/Fall dates. Not in person, but virtually.
  • To allow more time for prepare for this shift the April 17 Orientation will transition to April 24; we recognize that is during Finals so if you are unavailable that is okay, and we will further discuss.
  • We do not anticipate housing being an option for this summer. We are still waiting on confirmation, but that is the best information we can provide right now.

We will provide more guidance in the next week. Class is still on and we look forward to discussing more.
