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're going to have a lot of questions.  Through remote advising, you will speak with academic advisors who are experienced with helping students prepare for college life and academic work.  We look forward to working with you and helping answer all of your advising questions!

How does orientation advising work?

Your First-Year advisor will work with you remotely to complete the advising and registration process for your first semester courses after you have attended New Student Orientation. We encourage you to thoughtfully prepare for your advising session by completing all of the items on the First-Year New Student Checklist. If you will do your part, we promise to do ours in helping you take the best and most successful first steps toward a degree at UNF. Below we are listing a few other things you can do prior to attending Orientation.

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. Complete the survey sent to you by the New Student Orientation office.


  3. Clear registration holds on your account. You can view this information from the Holds tile of your myWings account. Please note your AO- New Student Orientation hold will be cleared after your advising appointment.


  4. Review the Canvas course for Math placement to confirm if the exam is necessary for you.

At your virtual New Student Orientation, our staff will set up your academic advising appointment. During this advising appointment you will be able to discuss your initial academic goals and your advisor will assist you with identifying appropriate courses. Your advisor will build an academic plan and lift your New Student Orientation hold so that you can register for courses (as long as all of your other holds are cleared).
