The Orientation month is held in September. The semester opens with the matriculation after which you officially become a FAMU student. In a matriculation ceremony, students entered in the student register of a faculty (matricula) pledge to fulfil the requirements of academic study, to honour their moral obligation toward the University, and to respect its internal regulations and the decisions of academic officials. The ceremony requires a formal attire.
During the Orientation month, you will learn about the KOS student system where you find the subjects you take (there is no hard-copy student book at FAMU, everything is done electronically). You will learn the details of your study system, teaching, information about the FAMU library, studio, classrooms, student ID and other elements. Attendance is mandatory.
Cost of living: A single student is advised to have available approximately 300 euros per month, which should cover accommodation, transport, food and entertainment.
