Orientation is your opportunity to start your Florida Tech Orlando experience off in a fun way! You will meet other students, faculty and staff, enjoy a welcome presentation, plan your schedule, register for classes, and receive your textbook list! Orientation is mandatory for all Florida Tech Orlando International students.
As an international student the DSO will be your primary point of contact on campus. Her role is to help you acclimate to Florida Tech through our services and programs and act as your primary liaison with the United States Department of Immigration. Your status in the United States is our primary concern.
As you make your plans to arrive, please remember, check-in and orientation are your first responsibilities as an international student in the United States.
International students who will begin their studies at Florida Institute of Technology-Orlando in the Fall 2019 semester must complete the following:
1. Check-in with FIT Orlando on or Before August 15th, 2019 (Check in will be completed during the mandatory orientation)
2. Mandatory Orientation
Planning Your Arrival Date
Students are required to make their own arrangements for housing upon arrival in the United States. You need to arrive in the United States a few days early, so that you have time to rent an apartment, arrange for transportation, settle in, adjust to the time difference, and be rested to begin classes. A listing of local hotels can be found on Florida Tech Orlando’s website.
