Families and Guests


Families and guests of incoming USF International students will be given the option to register for a supplemental Family and Guest Orientation Session.  Your Orientation experience will be made up of two different parts: (1) In-person, on-campus experience and (2) Online Orientation content via Canvas Catalog.


During your scheduled Orientation session, you'll join the Orientation Team and other USF Campus Partnersfor a full-day event on all things USF. Campus Partners and Orientation Leaders will guide you throughout the day, providing key university information and ways for you to support your student during their transition to USF. Please check back for more information regarding the schedule for the day.


The Canvas Catalog has a wealth of content for families and guests about USF resources that will help you support your student during their academic journey. Registered Families and Guests can log in and access the portal at their own pace. If you need any technical assistance in accessing this course, please email help@usf.edu.  Registered families and guests will be emailed instructions on how to access the Canvas Catalog portal.

To add a guest, students will need to log back in to their Orientation reservation, or contact us at myorientation@usf.edu.

Please note: Summer and Fall 2023 Live Synchronous (Virtual) Orientation sessions for transfer students do not have a family and guest component. First-year and Transfer in-person on campus Orientation sessions have a family and guest component.
