New Student Orientation

Congratulations on your admission to FSW! We look forward to welcoming you to the Buccaneer family!

The Online Orientation course:

  • is required*
  • takes less than 5 - 10 minutes to complete
  • will provide you with the resources you need to begin your journey at FSW
  • is in Canvas, the platform on which you will interact with most of your courses!

This orientation course is for students admitted for Spring 2024. If you are admitted for Spring 2024 but cannot access the orientation, please contact us.

Planning to start in a different term/semester?

If you applied within the last year and want to start classes in a different term than the one for which you applied (e.g. you submitted an application to begin in fall but now plan to begin in spring or summer):

If your application was submitted more than 1 year ago, you will have to submit a new application, but we'll waive your application fee! Just select the "AA/AS, Readmit" application when you apply.

*All First-Time in College students are required to complete Online Orientation. First-Time in College includes incoming freshmen and any graduating high school senior with previous dual enrollment credit from FSW.
