What is How to FAU?

Students who attend How to FAU can expect to build greater confidence in their abilities to successfully access and utilize on-campus resources in academic, leadership development, and career readiness areas. Much like New Student Orientation, attendance for How to FAU is required for all first-time, first-year students and recommended for transfer students during their first semester at FAU.

Your How to FAU Experience

Is How to FAU required?

The short answer: Yes.

All days of How to FAU events are required programs and attendance is integral to your transition to the University. Students will swipe into events with their FAU Owl Card and the Office of the Dean of Students will track attendance.

The choice to attend is similar to the decisions you make every day of your undergraduate career—whether to attend class or not, whether to meet with your academic advisor or not, or whether to get involved in student activities.
