Orientation is an important aspect in helping you prepare for college success. New Student Programs will offer guidance and resources that can help you get started at SF State.
Orientation is a collaborative effort consisting of academic counselors, student leaders, and many student service staff members. You are going to meet them at your orientation session, and feel free to ask them questions or discuss your academic plans.
In order to sign up for an orientation, you should first accept your admission offer (AAO). There is a web page provided for both first year freshmen and transfer student with the orientation dates available. Take a look at the dates and choose one that is best for you and register online.
