Get Ready to Take Flight!

We're excited for you to join the FAU community.  Orientation for incoming transfer students is a one-day experience.  This is the opportunity for transfer students to meet with their academic advisor, learn more about FAU, and to connect with other new students.


The Transfer Orientation session includes an appointment to meet with an academic advisor from your college.  Seats at each transfer orientation session are limited by college and major, and are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.  Be sure to log in to  your MyFAU portal to make your orientation reservation.  Remember, attendance at an orientation is required for all incoming transfer students, so sign up early.


 Transfer Orientation Dates for Fall 2014 have closed. 

  Dates for students entering Spring 2015 will be available late September.
