First Year Students

Fees to Attend

Your Orientation fee covers the costs of providing the Orientation experience to you including facility rentals, meals, staffing, and other services or expenses. While Orientation is required for new students by the USF System, the Office of Orientation receives no additional funding for its programming and operations.

Your payment can be made with VISA, MasterCard, Discover, or e-Check in your MyOrientation account. While payment by credit card or e-Check is preferred, we can accept cash, check, and money order. Please review these instructions for additional details.

Refunds are available in limited situations. Review our Refund Policy to see if your situation qualifies.

**This fee is reduced as it does not include overnight housing. No overnight housing is available for this session. Students may choose to move into their fall residence hall early, but will incur charges from Housing & Residential Education (up to $30/night depending on room assignment). Students who wish to choose this option will need to complete an Early Move In Form on the Housing Portal. Students who do not wish to move in early or are not living on campus will need to commute from home or make a reservation in a local hotel.
