Campus Student Orientation

your journey begins here

Welcome to F.I.R.S.T. Institute! For those of you who have been accepted into the program of your choice, congratulations! We are so excited to begin our journey together as we help launch your career in the digital media industry.

Please wait until your Admissions Representative has reached out to you with instructions on completing orientation before you begin. If you complete orientation before Admissions contacts you, you will be asked to submit it again so we ask that you please wait.

Keep in mind that all of the following items must be completed by 6pm on the Thursday before your class starts. Remember, this is mandatory. If you are having trouble accessing your accounts or understanding Canvas and Microsoft Office365, please feel free to reach out to us for help at help@first.edu or call our Tech department at (407) 316-8310 ext. 1602.

**Note: Canvas and Microsoft Office365 may look different if accessed from a mobile device.

You are required to join our virtual, live orientation on the Friday before your start date.
