Orientation Cost

Students, parents, and family members are charged a base orientation fee of $35 per person, regardless of the session type, campus, or term entering FSU. This covers educational sessions, materials, and staff to help ensure a smooth orientation experience.

For Tallahassee students: When registering for orientation, additional costs may be assessed to students and/or guests to provide a quality and seamless experience. Some of these costs include a housing charge (FTIC Summer/Fall sessions only) and a dining charge. Attendees can opt out of the additional charges, but New Student & Family Programs highly recommends that students stay in the residence hall and eat all meals on site during their New Nole Orientation session. Changes cannot be made on site and must be made in advance. Students can opt out of dining/housing through the orientation registration system.
