Whether you are a first-year, transfer, commuter or an international student, the orientation programs are designed to help you learn your way around campus, discover ways to get involved in student life, meet faculty and staff and make new friends.

Special sessions are offered just for transfer students, Honors Program students, First-Year Student Seminar I and II or BAC 101/102 and first-year students. Attendance is required. International first-year and transfer students on visas will arrive for a special orientation prior to the regular new student orientation program. New graduate international students are also required to attend the special orientation prior to their scheduled orientation with the Office of Graduate and Continuing Studies.

During orientation, there is an additional orientation program designed specifically for parents of new students to the University of Tampa. For more information and the host hotel, see Family Orientation.
