Welcome to UCF! We received your Orientation reservation and are excited that you chose UCF to pursue your college career! Please carefully read over the information below because it contains important Orientation information, including a short checklist of things to do before Orientation and what to expect.
Please note, that after thoughtful consideration, all students participating in 2020 Summer/Fall Transfer and FTIC Orientations will complete the New Knight Virtual Experience. The program will NOT include an in-person component, but you are still asked to be available the day of your Orientation event. You can learn more about what’s happening on this page.
Plans and processes for the online program are still being solidified, but we will rely heavily on university-wide technology to continue providing an engaging, interactive program. We anticipate coordinating a virtual experience for our Families and Guests in order to provide you resources and assistance as you support your students in their transition to the University.
We encourage you to download the UCF Mobile app from the Apple or Android Store.
