Virtual Orientation

ucf portal

All incoming Transfer students and students taking a recognized Online Program are required to complete a short Virtual Orientation component on the web (using UCF’s online course tools) prior to attending their on-campus component (if applicable). Students will not be able to access Virtual Orientation until their online registration and payment have been processed.

Login Instructions

You will need your NID to access the Virtual Orientation. To get your NID, please go to myUCF and click "NID Password Reset" to find your NID or NID password. Write down your NID and save it in a secure place.

Once you have been added to the Virtual Orientation course, you should receive an email from Webcourses@UCF with the subject Course Invitation. Follow the link in the email; once you accept your invitation, you can begin taking your Virtual Orientation session!

Note: if you do not accept the course invitation, your progress will not be tracked.

Alternate Instructions

If you have lost the email or it has been sent to your spam folder, you can access the Virtual Orientation by going directly to Webcourses@UCF:

  1. Navigate to the UCF Webcourses@UCF log-in page

  2. Use your NID and NID password to access Webcourses@UCF. You will find the invitation to the course on your recent activities page.

  3. If you have already accepted your course invitation, you should find the course (labeled with your Orientation date) under the course tab at the top of the page.
