Transfer Orientation Registration
As a new transfer student, you have the option of attending Transfer Orientation and/or participating in Online Orientation. Registration for the on-campus Transfer Orientation is in MyWings. Please refer to your UNF Admissions letter to confirm the status of your Admissions BEFORE signing up for an Orientation session and for the appropriate term for which session you should attend. Questions about your admissions term? Having issues logging into your MyWings account, visit the MyWings How-to Videos help page.
Signing Up for Orientation in myWings
- Log into your myWings account using your UNF "N" number and password
- Click on the What's Next? tile
- Click on the Register for Orientation
- Read and follow ALL the instructions on the page
- Select your admission term and then choose your orientation session
- Click submit
If you need to change your scheduled orientation date complete the steps above again and select your new preferred session. Please note space may not be available in the session you need so it is important to choose the correct date first.
IMPORTANT: Please check all schedules (work, vacations, graduation, etc.) before making an orientation reservation. Once your reservation has been confirmed it may be difficult to choose another date with an open seat.
No registration is required for Online Orientation. You'll be given access upon acceptance to UNF, and you can view and review as may times as you'd like. We encourage all new transfer Ospreys to view the Online Orientation in addition to attending Transfer Orientation, but both are optional. You can also self-enroll in the Next Steps Guide for Transfer Students course in Canvas for additional access to resources and how-to guides! Self-enroll here: Self Enroll.
STEPS: Login to myWings > select the What's Next tile > choose Online Orientation
It is essential for your success as a UNF student that you meet with your academic advisor prior to registering for your classes. Most academic advising offices have walk-in hours; however, we recommend making an appointment. Please plan to meet with your Academic Advisor before attending Transfer Orientation.
Make Your Academic Advising Appointment
At UNF each college has a specialized Academic Advising office, with professional staff and faculty advisors that are specialist in your major. Please find the contact information for your college's office on the Academic Advising website.
Transferring to UNF with fewer than 30 credit hours? You'll need to begin your academic advising process with the First-Year Advising office.
