Questions Regarding Summer Orientation 2020 & COVID-19
Due to COVID-19 (coronavirus) in the United States and California, San Francisco State has limited services at this time. However, the University and New Student Programs is currently evaluating options to provide an enjoyable and beneficial orientation experience.
Please continue to check this website for important updates/changes to New Student Orientation for Summer 2020.
In the meantime, please continue to review the University website, register for Summer Orientation on April 1, 2020, and contact our office via email if you have any questions.
What does the $50 online orientation fee cover?
Due to COVID-19, we have reduced the current $70 in-person orientation fee to $50 for online orientation. This $50 online orientation fee covers the cost of the design and development of the online orientation program and future extended orientation programming and service provided in the Fall. In order to provide a comprehensive online orientation program, we employ current SF State students as Orientation Leaders during the summer, who support all new students in their orientation experience. We also involve faculty and staff to create an online program that is meaningful and comprehensive of a successful transition to San Francisco State and college life. Further, this fee helps cover the cost of additional technology that will be used to support the creation of an online orientation for thousands of new students. Additionally, when students come to campus in Fall 2020, we will provide extended in-person orientation programming, workshops, and SF State related materials. Your $50 fee helps with future new student programming, events, and a holistic first-year experience, all while maintaining our team of staff and student orientation leaders.
