First Time in College (FTIC) Students


The type of Orientation you register for depends on your major. If your major is housed on the main campus, choose “Orlando Campus.” If you are in one of the majors that location on UCF Downtown, select “Downtown Campus.”

All Orientations are in person, except if you are enrolled in a specific UCF-Online degree. UCF Online students will have an online Orientation with no specific date. All other majors will have a two (2) day in-person experience, no exceptions.

At UCF, students who have earned less than 12 hours of college credit AFTER graduating from high school are considered Freshmen/FTICs. The amount of college credit earned through AP/IB/Dual Enrollment while still enrolled in high school does not count towards classification as an FTIC or transfer.

  • Monday, December 12 – Tuesday, December 13
  • Wednesday, January 4 – Thursday, January 5
