Because we want our students to succeed, all undergraduate students are required to complete a UCF Orientation component prior to registering for classes.
Our primary goal at Orientation is to assist students and their families with the transition to attending and experiencing UCF.
Throughout each session, students will work with advisors to plan out a class schedule, receive information on a variety of student services, explore ways to get involved with groups and events on campus, be introduced to academic policies and support services, and meet with new students (and make new friends!).
Orientation is a two-day event for all incoming Freshman students. Otherwise, all Transfer Orientations, and Regional Campus Orientations are single-day events.
Students will have the opportunity to register for their first classes at Orientation, so it is helpful for students to review the Online Course Catalog and Undergraduate Catalog prior to attending, which can be found as part of the Before Orientation Checklist.
Orientation also provides students with a developmental opportunity to establish themselves as leaders on campus. Thirty-five students are employed to implement this complex program. They lead small groups, answer questions from students and family members, assist with advisement, implement event logistics, and gain valuable experience in customer service and problem solving. These positions offer students a unique.
