Farmingdale State College Student Orientation

Congratulations on your acceptance to Farmingdale State College!

We're excited to announce a new online orientation program for our transfer and non-traditional students starting on campus for the Fall 2018 semester. Simply fill out the form below to register/pay the mandatory $55 fee and check the email you provide for further instructions.

Please DO NOT complete the registration form unless:

1) You are prepared to make a credit card payment for $55 at the conclusion of the registration form.


2) You have pre-paid for the program by submitting a check or exact change cash payment for $55 to the Office of the Dean of Students (Laffin 314).

Do not register more than once as duplicate entries can cause software errors. Upon receipt of payment, instructions will be emailed to you on how to access the program.

Veterans and EOP students are exempt from the $55 fee and should fill out the form, not pay, and then email orientation@farmingdale.edu for further instructions.

Please note: The software program requires a 24-hour wait period after payment is received until your credentials are activated for use (weekend registrations: next business day). We ask that new students complete the program by the end of the first week of classes. 

The Orientation Software has been rigorously tested to be compatible across desktop and mobile platforms. We encourage you to ensure your browser of choice is updated for the best viewing experience. If for some reason a particular web browser does not allow for a seamless experience, try another browser such as Google Chrome. Please note that skipping or buffering during video playback can be the result of many factors, most often relating to internet connection issues. The video software (Vimeo) is designed to adapt video resolution to the internet connection speed it detects from the viewer. But in the case there are still issues, the viewer can click the HD icon in the play bar and select a lower resolution for the video to play back in. This may help to optimize performance better in cases of high-traffic times of day on that internet service provider's system. You may also try having the video load completely before playback. Start the video, press pause and wait for the gray bar to fill along the player timeline before continuing.

Log-in issues:

-Please note you will not be able to log-in until you have paid in full.

-If you forget your password, please follow the "Forgot Password" link on the bottom right-hand corner of the program main page.

-If you paid for the program, and received an email invitation but your RAM ID and password do not grant you access to the program, please contact Kevin at the Office of the Dean of Students at schnurk@farmingdale.edu.
