Transfer Orientation

Summer & 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. Once you complete orientation, you must contact your major department and make an appointment to see an academic advisor in your college of study. Transfer students who are Active Duty Military, Non-degree seeking or students accepted into an Online Only Program of Study DO NOT have to complete the Student Transition Program Orientation.

ONLINE ONLY PROGRAM STUDENTS
If you have been admitted to an Online Only Program of Study, you will not need to complete an Orientation session through the Office of 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 Program student.

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

Registration
You 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, and complete the application.

The Office of Family Programs, which is housed in Student Transition Programs, operates a separate, concurrent, two-day program specifically for parents and families. If you plan to attend orientation, you must register on your student's application under guests. Guests can be parents, family members or siblings. Keep in mind that there is an additional fee for guests.

Edits to Your Registration
You may change sessions, add a guest or make other edits to your orientation registration even after submitting your payment. 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.

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.
