Freshmen – Orlando (Main) Campus

Orientation is required for all new UCF students. UCF’s Orientation experience provides information for all incoming students to be successful, both inside and outside of the classroom. Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at 407-823-5105 or fye@ucf.edu.

Orientation session dates are available based on the semester in which you are enrolling. Orientation dates are tentative and subject to change. Registration for summer/fall entry opens in February; registration for spring entry opens in mid-October.

All 2020 Summer/Fall Transfer and FTIC Orientations will occur virtually. The program will NOT include an in-person component. You can learn more about the New Knight Virtual Experience here.

IMPORTANT: Although Orientation will be completed remotely, you are expected to still be available for the entirety of your Orientation date/program.

Freshman/FTIC students must submit the $200 Enrollment Deposit prior to registering for Orientation.
