Academic Advising at New Student Orientation

Congratulations on being admitted to UNF!  

As you begin to make the transition from high school to college, you are going to have a lot of questions. During your orientation, you will meet individually with an academic advisor who is experienced with helping students prepare for their academic program.  We look forward to meeting with you and helping answer all of your advising questions!

How does orientation advising work?

Your First-Year Advisor will work with you on day two of your orientation to discuss your initial academic goals, and help you select courses for your first semester. We encourage you to thoughtfully prepare for your advising session by completing the steps below. If you do your part, we promise to do ours in helping you take the best first steps toward a degree at UNF. 

First Step

Register for orientation through the Orientation Office.

Next Steps

To help us make sure our advising visit is as productive as possible, please complete the following steps:

  1. Visit our First-Year Advising Guide and review the helpful information we have published.


  2. Visit the "New to the Nest" information in the Canvas tile of your myWings portal.


  3. Clear registration holds on your account. You can view this information from the Holds tile of your myWings portal. Please note - your New Student Orientation hold will be cleared after you meet with an advisor on day two of your orientation.

Later in the afternoon on day two of orientation, you will be given an opportunity to register for the courses you discussed with your advisor earlier in the day.
