Every new student at the University of South Florida must attend an on-campus, University Orientation on the campus in which they are admitted. Orientation on all campuses provides an introduction to the University of South Florida and facilitates the smooth transition of students into the academic and social environments of the University. During the University Orientation, students are made aware of the following: college overviews and requirements for their degree program; general University policies and services; and student activities and campus life. In addition, academic advising and registration for classes are part of the orientation process. Orientation is required for all new students to the University. Orientation programs are available on all campuses and students should contact their home campus directly to make arrangements for their orientation session.
