Preview is more than just a moment it is the event that sets a course for a whole new world. The University of Florida is excited to welcome you to its thriving community. The transition to life at UF can be both an exciting and challenging time. Your new student transition experience will help you successfully prepare for your college transition. Together, we will take the University of Florida to new heights.
First, there is Transfer Preview, a required, robust virtual program, focused on providing you the core resources to start your Gator journey. Then you will be invited to participate in Gator Nation Visit Days (GNV Days), an optional one-day in-person transition program to help you get connected and learn about all the campus has to offer.
Students & Families will register for a 1-day session in May, June, or July. Each session will consist of information from their academic adviser, a help desk to register for classes, and a student panel to learn more about UF and meet incoming peers.
Students should be available from 8:30 am – 5 pm EDT for their Preview date. Family Preview will take place during the week of their students’ session and have live and recorded options for families to engage and ask questions.
