NEW STUDENT ORIENTATION

START STRONG AT CSUDH

Whether you’re an incoming freshman, transfer student, graduate student, international student, or veteran student, attending new student orientation at CSUDH is a great way to get hands-on help registering for the right classes, familiarize yourself with the campus, and learn about key student services and resources available to support your success on campus, in class, and in the world beyond.

FRESHMAN ORIENTATION

Starting at a four-year college can be a big transition for many students. We know you may have questions about what to expect, where to go, and what next steps to take. Start by attending New Student Orientation for freshmen. Mandatory for all new freshmen, NSO is where you’ll register for classes, learn about financial aid, and more.

 

TRANSFER ORIENTATION

We’re here to make transferring to our campus easier for you. That’s why we strongly encourage you to attend New Student Orientation for transfer students. Although you have been to college before, there are some important differences at CSUDH. Attending orientation for transfer students will help navigate those differences, while maximizing your time and your success.

INTERNATIONAL ORIENTATION

If you’re an International Student, please attend a special New International Student Orientation to get information on visa issues, maintaining legal status, and other important details on transitioning to university life in the US.
