UF Online Gator 1 Card

Welcome to the Gator 1 Card application for UF Online students. You may begin the process any time after you have registered for orientation. However, you will not be able to receive your Gator 1 Card unless you have successfully completed orientation.

What will I need?

To complete the Gator 1 Card validation process you will need the following:

3. Skype for Business for Video Conference

You will submit your photo and document through our secure online system. After our staff has approved your submissions and you have completed orientation, you will schedule a video conference. A webcam and microphone are required.

Skype for Business will be used for the video conference and is provided as part of the Office 365 ProPlus package available for free to UF Students. Click here to learn how to install the Skype for Business client. Please contact the UF Help Desk if you have trouble installing Skype for Business.
