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.

There is a $35 Orientation fee that helps cover the costs of providing the full Orientation experience to students, familities, and guests, including facility rentals, meals, staffing, and necessary services and expenses to ensure a successful start.
