Orientation is the key to a successful transition to CSU!
It’s fun, informative and a chance to immerse yourself in all things CSU before classes begin. Orientation is mandatory for incoming freshmen and optional – but highly recommended – for transfer students. We offer in-person and online options so you can get the most of out of your experience.
- Meet your college or academic advisor
- Register for classes
- Get your Viking ID card
- Explore campus services
- Meet fellow Vikings – students and staff!
- Sessions on financial aid, academic success, student involvement and more
Transfer students must schedule an appointment with their academic advisors to register for classes the first time. Orientation, while not mandatory, is a great opportunity to learn more about campus and meet other incoming students. Transfer students can register for in-person or online events.
Once you’ve signed up, you will receive a confirmation e-mail with important next steps. Incoming freshman must attend orientation in order to register for classes. Registration opens October 2022!
Log into your applicant student portal to register – or hit the giant button below.
TIP: Attending the earliest orientation date possible means the best selection of courses and course times offered. Don’t wait – seize the date!
