Honors Orientation

First-time in College Students

Students who are admitted into the Burnett Honors College are encouraged to attend the orientation session that is specified for Honors students. This session usually occurs in early June. Students and parents will have an opportunity to meet Honors Staff, learn about Honors requirements and opportunities, and register for Honors and non-Honors classes. Peer Ambassadors, who are upper division Honors students, serve as co-hosts for this event.

Students who are unable to attend the Honors Orientation are encouraged to attend one of several other sessions designated for Honors students. During these sessions, students will meet with Honors representatives during lunch on the first day of orientation to learn about Honors requirements and opportunities. Students will register for classes with Honors staff in the Honors Computer Lab on Day 2.

Transfer Students

Students who have been admitted into the Burnett Honors College as transfer students should attend any Transfer Orientation Session. At the students’ convenience, they must also meet with the Director of Honors Advising in BHC 109. Once both of these steps have been completed, transfer Honors students will be able to register for Honors classes.

Registering for Orientation

Students should sign up for orientation at http://orientation.ucf.edu/ as soon as possible after they are admitted to both UCF and the Burnett Honors College, beginning in February.
