Become an Orientation Leader

Application due October 10 at midnight.


What is an Orientation Leader?

UCF’s Orientation Team is comprised of current undergraduate student Orientation Leaders (OLs) who are dedicated to the university and to helping others. OLs assist in the facilitation of all Freshman, or First Time in College (FTIC), and Transfer student Orientation sessions on UCF’s Main Campus and UCF Downtown. What’s more, they are trained as campus experts to transition new Knights and their guests into the UCF community and assist with academic advising and class registration.

The Orientation Team is a very prestigious group of student leaders at UCF and is chosen after a competitive application process. Being an OL is a paid experience, and students that are selected will be required to participate in all summer, fall, and spring Orientation sessions. OLs serve as role models for all current and future students and embody all five tenants of the UCF Creed.
