Welcome new Argos! Thank you for visiting the orientation homepage. Orientation is MANDATORY for all FTIC and transfer students. FTIC students must attend an on-campus orientation session. Transfer students may choose to attend an on-campus orientation session or take the online orientation.
Due to a transition in our system, we have a delay in the opening of our orientation registration for students starting in Fall 2014. We anticipate it to be ready mid-December. Periodically check back here for further updates. Thank you for your patience.
All fees associated with orientation are non-refundable. This includes registration, meals, overnight housing for students, etc. Once you register for orientation, you will be prompted to pay orientation fees. They are not refundable, so be very certain before you make your reservations. Registration confirmation emails with detailed information will be sent 2 weeks prior to the on-campus orientation date.
Registration for orientation is now open on my.uwf.edu. The orientation dates for transfer and first time in college (FTIC) students starting in the spring are Thursday, December 5 and Friday, January 3. Students who are long-distance travelers and are attending the December 5 orientation session will need to make hotel accommodations. Students attending the January 3 orientation session and living off campus in the spring will also need to make hotel accommodations. Please visit our website at uwf.edu/orientation/planning/lodging for a listing of hotels and motels in the Pensacola area. Students attending the January 3 orientation session and living on campus in a residence hall in the spring are allowed to move into their room on Thursday, January 2 from 1-4 p.m.
Please read through the entire site. You will gain a better understanding of the requirements and feel better prepared for orientation and the transition to UWF.
