welcomeWhat Happens at Orientation?


College is an exciting and challenging time for students and their families, so we have prepared a comprehensive orientation program focused on creating a smooth transition to life at New College of Florida. We want you to be successful; therefore, all new students are required to attend orientation.

Wizard of Oz New Student Orientation (8/17-8/25):
Week-long program connects new students with campus resources, academic info sessions, mini-classes & faculty advisors; learn to negotiate contracts (register for classes), attend a variety of social events and journey into our theme, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.


Parent & Guardian Orientation (8/18): 1-day program offers a variety of sessions with key staff and faculty to address family questions about campus life and academic success.
