Welcome to USF Sarasota-Manatee!
Now that you have been admitted, your next step is to sign up for an Orientation session.
Completion of Orientation is mandatory for all newly admitted undergraduate students.
Orientation Consists of Two Sections:
- General Orientation Session – Transfer students must complete an in-person Orientation session. Orientation will provide university and academic information, as well as financial aid and student information specific to USF Sarasota-Manatee. Attending an in-person Orientation session allows you to connect with your fellow classmates, receive a personalized campus tour, and utilize our "One-stop shop" services to ensure a successful transition to the University of South Florida Sarasota - Manatee campus
- Newly Admitted Student Appointment - Click here for your advising appointment – You will meet with your academic advisor to plan for your major, and select your first semester courses.
