Although the Orientation experience will be completed remotely, you are expected to still be available for the entirety of your UCF Success Session and Advising & Enrollment Session. Your Orientation experience includes a Virtual Orientation Webcourse. This content should be completed at least 3 business days prior to your Orientation date. This Webcourse has 3 parts:
The first section consists of content designed to give you a foundation for your student experience here at UCF. You will learn more about student life, academic support resources available, and the role you play in keeping UCF safe for all of our Knights. At the end of this section, you will submit the “Part 1: University Content Completion Form” to indicate that you have completed this section of your Orientation experience. It will take you approximately 1.5-2 hours to complete this Part of your Orientation experience.
This content is designed to help you prepare to meet with your academic advisor, plan your schedule, and register for classes. At the end of this part, you will find your “Part 2: Academic College Web Content Completion Form” to submit to have this section of your experience marked as completed. This content should be completed no less than 3 business days prior to your Orientation session. If you change your major or have been added to the wrong Colleges, Webcourse, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
