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.
The orientation program for transfer students is from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Lunch is included with the orientation fee.
Online registration is open to incoming transfer students who have completed their intent to enroll. Incoming transfer students, who are eligible to register for NSO, will receive an email with registration information, please check both your personal and Toro email. If you have not received an NSO registration email, please call (310) 243-3422.
