New Student Orientation

Congratulations on your admission to Florida Memorial University! You are about to embark on some of the best years of your life. You can close the gap between dreaming about your future and fulfilling your dreams through your enrollment at FMU. So many exciting things await you as you begin this new chapter!

New Student Orientation is planned especially for our newly admitted freshmen, transfer, and re-admitted students. The program is designed to help students make a successful transition to Florida Memorial University. During virtual Pre-Orientation, you will be introduced to the First-Year Experience, campus resources, student support services, and academic offerings. Our in-person New Student Orientation will expose you to our campus and culture, and allow you to engage with students, faculty, and staff. Students will be allowed to register for an in-person New Student Orientation once all enrollment requirements have been met and the $200 reservation fee has been paid. Please ensure that all steps in the Accepted Students-Next Steps Checklist have been completed prior to attending an in-person New Student Orientation.
