Transfer Orientation

Fall 2014 Transfer Students
Welcome to Transfer Student Orientation! Orientation is required for all new transfer students. Transfer students can attend an on-campus orientation OR take the online orientation. You must contact your major department and make an appointment to see an academic advisor in your college of study. You can do this before or after orientation completion. Transfer students who are active-duty military, non-degree seeking, readmitted, or students accepted into an online-only program of study DO NOT have to complete orientation through Student Transition Programs.

*Check-in for orientation on August 4th is from 7:30-8 a.m. in the Commons Conference Center (2nd floor of Bldg. 22). Bring a government-issued photo ID to obtain your Nautilus ID card, rain gear/umbrella in case of rain, and immunization records if you have not yet submitted them.

Online-Only Program Students
If you have been admitted to an online-only program of study, you do not need to complete orientation through Student Transition Programs. Please visit http://onlinecampus.uwf.edu/pdfs/studentOrientationPDF.cfm so that you have all the information you need as an online-only student.

Benefits
During orientation, you will receive information about various campus services and opportunities, and interact with other students, faculty and staff.

Registration
Students and guests (parents, family members and/or siblings) must register for orientation on my.uwf.edu. Directions: Go to MyUWF, log in using your UWF ID #, search and click Orientation Registration for Undergraduate Students, select Fall 2014 and Forward, and complete the reservation.

Edits to Your Registration
You may change sessions, add a guest or make other edits to your orientation registration even after submitting your payment. However, you will not receive a refund for the price difference. Edits to your orientation registration may be completed up to one week prior to your orientation session on MyUWF. If you request edits to your registration less than one week prior to your orientation, you must consult with the Student Transition Programs at (850) 473-7229 or orientation@uwf.edu. To edit your orientation registration, go to MyUWF, log in using your UWF ID #, search and click Orientation Registration for Undergraduate Students (where your completed application will appear), click on Edit My Orientation Registration and choose your preferred orientation date.

All fees associated with orientation are non-refundable. This includes student and guest registration fees, cancellations, student and guest reservation changes, meals, overnight housing for students, tax, program materials, etc. Once you register for orientation, you will be prompted to pay orientation fees. Your spot at orientation will be reserved upon payment completion. Orientation fees are not refundable, so be very certain before you make your reservations. (For example, if you are a transfer student registered for an on-campus orientation and you decide to switch to the online orientation, you will not receive a refund for the difference.)

Orientation Itinerary
Students, parents and families attending orientation will receive a printed schedule of events and other materials at check-in. Registration confirmation emails with detailed information will be sent two weeks prior to your on-campus orientation. Check out this year's orientation schedule for Fall Transfer students, parents and family members: 2014 Transfer Orientation Packet
