FTIC/Lower–Division Transfer Student Terms of Orientation Agreement

  1. I have read and understand all of the information available on the New Student & Family Programs website (dos.fsu.edu/nsfp).
  2. I understand that the freshmen/lower-division transfer program for summer/fall admits (May–June ONLY, not August or Spring sessions) includes on–campus student housing for two nights in Degraff Hall. Your program will be two nights and two days. Check–in for orientation/housing will occur between 7:00–8:30 p.m. at Degraff Hall on the first evening.(ex. If your session is May 18–20, you check–in between 7:00 p.m.–8:30 p.m. on May 18.) For Spring freshmen/lower-divison transfer students, your program is a day-and-a-half from 10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. the first day and 8:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. the second day.
  3. I understand that full orientation participation is mandatory for all new degree–seeking undergraduate students. Therefore, I should not make plans to leave before 1:00 p.m. on the final day of my program. I will be unable to register for my courses until I have fully completed orientation.
  4. I understand that the University highly encourages each student to have at least one family member attend orientation with the student so the family can gain information and be best prepared to help the student transition to the University. I acknowledge that the student schedule is sometimes separate from the family schedule. Family member housing is not provided during any orientation sessions.
  5. All orientation participants must adhere to University policies while on campus. Orientation students have a strictly enforced curfew (May–June orientation sessions only) which requires them to be inside the orientation residence hall by 11:00 p.m. New students violating the curfew, another University policy, or the law will be removed from the orientation program and campus immediately. These students will be subject to the student conduct process as outlined in the Student Conduct Code and the outcome may result in loss of admission to Florida State University. If removed from an orientation session, students will need to attend another session.
  6. I understand that the University requires each student to submit (paper) Health History/Immunization Compliance Forms and complete an (online) Health Insurance Verification process before they will be able to register for classes at the conclusion of orientation. These two items should be completed as soon as possible. The Health History/Immunization Compliance Forms can be downloaded at http://uhs.fsu.edu. The online Health Insurance Verification process can be completed at http://studentinsurance.fsu.edu/.
  7. I understand that orientation reservations cannot be held without payment.
  8. I understand that space at each orientation session is available on a first-reserve basis until sessions have reached their maximum capacity and I accept that sessions may close at any time.
  9. I understand a confirmation email will be sent to me once my orientation fees have been paid and I should not make lodging or travel arrangements until I have received a confirmation email or contacted the University to confirm my reservation was successful.
  10. I understand that all orientation fees are nonrefundable.

  3. I understand that the University highly encourages each student to have at least one family member attend orientation with the student so the family can gain information and be best prepared to help the student transition to the University. I acknowledge that the student schedule is sometimes separate from the family schedule.
  4.
