First Year and Transition Programs
Welcome to Stetson!
The transition to college is an exciting time! But it can also cause some degree of anxiety for you and your family. At Stetson University we're committed to assisting you in gaining the academic skills and social connections needed to be a successful Hatter. Our Orientation Programs are designed to help connect you with other future Hatters and allow you to feel comfortable starting your Stetson journey.
Summer Orientation is a time for you to learn more about life at Stetson and begin to feel comfortable with the transition to starting life at college in the Fall.
All new students beginning classes in the fall are welcomed to Stetson University five days before the first day of classes to participate in FOCUS Orientation.
Our First Year and Transition Programs are designed to support all students in their first year at Stetson University, including transfer and nontraditional students.
One of the most important and engaging courses you will take at Stetson University will be your First Year Seminar.
