Due to COVID-19 and the risk of coronavirus, the Florida Tech campus has decided to move Summer 2020 orientation online. All new students starting in Summer 2020 will recieve an email to access the online orientation via canvas. This email will be generated 48-72 hours after completing Panther Pass. Please make sure to upload a picture for your ID in Panther Pass as pictures will not be taken in person for an ID at the Campus Services Office.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email orientation@fit.edu.
