Orientation

Orientation is a structured interactive session that provides new incoming transfer students with the tools, information and resources  necessary for academic success at FAU. Major university policies and procedures, as well as support services are given in a short program offered both during the day and evening. As part of orientation, students have an opportunity to meet with an academic advisor to discuss coursework.

The information received at Orientation is vital to your success at FAU. All new students are required to attend a session. Those unable to attend a session may complete a Virtual Orientation.
