New Graduate Student Online Orientation

The University of West Florida Graduate School's orientation for new graduate students takes place at the start of each semester. The orientation will provide you with an overview of University services and extracurricular opportunities and an understanding of what to expect academically and financially as a new UWF graduate student.

In addition, you will have the opportunity to hear from current graduate students, the Graduate Student Advisory Board, and other campus organizations, as well as receive information about your nautilus card and how to purchase textbooks and parking permits.

The platform allows you to attend the orientation 100% online, at your own convenience.
