You will receive access to the modules approximately two weeks before your orientation session. Follow these steps to access the modules:

  • After you have successfully logged in, access the “First Year Advising Modules" from the UCF Webcourses dashboard. Open the dashboard from the navigation menu on the left side of the screen, if the dashboard is not already opened.
  • Click on the course title and begin the modules with our welcome video.

The First Year Advising modules should take you approximately 25 minutes to complete. If you have any questions or concerns regarding these modules, please contact us and we will respond within 24-48 business hours.
