Families and Guests




Why is there a fee involved?

This fee helps us to cover the costs associated with managing orientation including space, staff, meals, and supplies.

Is Orientation required?

Yes! Besides the fact that we can't wait to meet you, our programs are intentionally designed for you and your student to get the most out of Orientation and a smooth transtion into USF. Our Orientation sessions provide you with information that help you navigate your transition to USF. This is also a great way to learn more about all that the University has to offer.

What should I bring to Orientation?

A pen is always useful, since you may be taking notes or writing down information. You'll also want to bring a sweater or jacket, as our indoor meeting locations can be cool. Florida weather can be unpredictable, so it is always a good idea to bring an umbrella. We will provide you with meals, but in case you get hungry in between sessions you may want to bring a snack or two.


Where can I get more information?

Once your student registers you as their guest for Orientation, an e-confirmation packet will be added to their MyOrientation reservation. The student and guest e-confirmation packets can be downloaded/printed by logging back into the MyOrientation reservation system using the student's NetID. Be sure to keep an eye on your email, as we will be sending you additional information prior to your Orientation session via email. Please contact us if you have questions in the meantime.

Sounds great! How do I sign-up?

Your student can add you to their Orientation registration by logging into MyOrientation with their NetID and password.
