Transfer admitted for Fall 2013

Congratulations on making CSUDH your choice as you continue your pursuit of higher education. New Student Orientation will give you the opportunity to become familiar with the campus, obtain valuable information on how to succeed academically, as well as how to get involved on campus.

What do I have to complete before I can make an orientation reservation?

Students must fulfill a number of requirements prior to making a reservation. It is critical for students to adhere to university deadlines and requirements as missing any will impact the ability to attend CSUDH. Students must:

  • Activate account
  • Submit intent to enroll on by May 1, 2014
  • Submit Financial Aid application and supporting documentation

Signing up for NSO finalizes your intent to attend CSUDH.

Registration for Orientation

Orientation sessions are scheduled during the summer and offered for students to select on a first-come, first-served basis. Early registration is encouraged so that you are able to select dates that fit your schedule. Reservations cannot be made over email or by phone. There is never a guarantee that students will be able to reserve a space in their preferred orientation so we encourage flexibility. Students should NEVER make travel plans until an orientation reservation has been confirmed.

Transfer Student Orientation Dates and Time

The orientation program for transfer students is from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Lunch is included with the orientation fee.
