Orientation

Orientation dates are tentative and subject to change. Registration for summer/fall dates opens in February; registration for spring dates opens in October.

Orlando Campus

Orientation session dates are available to students based on the semester in which they are enrolling. Transfer students must attend a Transfer Orientation and Freshman students must attend an Freshman Orientation. If a student is part of a special program, we encourage them to register for the dates associated with that program. Transfer students completing a fully online program from a distance (including UCF Online) are able to complete Orientation online.

If a student's program requires them to attend a specific Orientation session, only that session date will appear when the student registers online.
