Transfer Orientation Overview

UNF's Transfer Orientation Program is an optional (but highly encouraged) half-day program filled with informational sessions, academic advising, and meeting and interacting with other incoming Ospreys. You will pay a one-time orientation fee when you pay your tuition to cover the cost of materials and program sessions offered at orientation. We encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity to learn more about the UNF campus and to see how you can get involved.
