Making Your Orientation Reservation

The University of South Florida is committed to providing all incoming students the resources to be successful as they enter the university setting. We strive to provide excellent student experiences and knowledge about the University of South Florida (USF) by way of intentional and specific programming for first year students, transfer students, international students and their families. Our Orientations are designed with these goals in mind.

The cost of Orientation includes the state authorized Orientation fee of $35.00 as well as the costs of providing the full Orientation experience to students, families and guests, including facility rentals, meals, staffing and necessary services and expenses to ensure a successful start.

Orientation session fees are currently under review. Please check back at a later time for  a list of confirmed session fees.

All students are required to pay for Orientation at time of reservation. If you’re experiencing financial difficulties, please contact us at
