New faculty members at UCF participate in two required orientations, each having very different purposes:
At the HR Orientation you will complete the paperwork necessary for payroll and benefits. You may elect to complete the orientation in mixed mode or fully online. New faculty who desire to be covered by health insurance beginning in September must submit enrollment forms in August. Click here to register at HR.
At the Academic Orientation you will learn about various policies and procedures (including Tenure and Promotion) that impact your various roles as a member of the UCF Faculty. The Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning (FCTL) is your host for the Academic Orientation. The two-day event takes place in the Student Union and Classroom 1 buildings on the Orlando Campus. Each day of the orientation is filled with important activities that will provide valuable information to enable you to have a successful start to your career at UCF. At the Academic Orientation you will meet the president, provost, deans, chairs, other new faculty, and directors of support departments. These days also include complimentary breakfast and luncheon events.
