The Preview Orientation program provides an inclusive one-stop experience for students transitioning to the University of Florida. Each Preview program is designed around the specific needs of the individual and focuses on student success, persistence, and timely graduation. Costs are based on a variety of factors including facility rentals, staffing, meals and other programmatic expenses.

In accordance with Florida State Statute, students are charged a base orientation fee of $35 which covers general University information. To provide students the best orientation and transition process UF offers a robust one day transfer orientation program as well as ongoing transition support throughout the first year. Students may choose to opt out of the full orientation and transition package. Students who choose to opt out would NOT receive the following: one-on-one preliminary course selection review & degree tracking review with orientation staff, meals, and support materials. The average cost for the full one-day orientation is $75.00 (including $35.00 orientation fee) per person.
