Orientation

All new and many returning SFSC students are required to participate in college orientation. Orientation must be completed before you will be allowed to register for courses. Orientation is part of a program called Guide to Personal Success (GPS). It consists of six “waypoints” (reference points) to help you successfully navigate your first year at SFSC.

You must complete all six waypoints of GPS Orientation:

  • Waypoint 1: An online overview of SFSC programs and services that includes information about the college admission process, and
  • Waypoints 2 -6: An on-campus face-to-face program that features informational workshops, “hands on” computer training for Panther Central and Panther Den, a service fair and more!

Go to www.southflorida.edu/orientation/waypoint1/welcome/ to access Waypoint 1.

After you have completed Waypoint 1 and submitted all necessary transcripts and admission documents you will receive a letter of admission from the college which will provide instructions for registering for your mandatory on-campus orientation (Waypoint 2-6).  To help you with planning, a list of upcoming orientation dates is provided below.
