Students who have received a AA degree from a Florida community college are eligible for priority registration for Orientation and will be able to register for classes sooner than other new students. In order to qualify for this benefit, your final transcripts showing the AA degree must be submitted before Oct. 1, 2015.
Students requiring special arrangements due to religious observances are asked to coordinate with our office by submitting an online request. Orientation staff will coordinate with the student to accommodate the arrangements.
