Sign up for orientation online after you accept your offer of admission (AAO) and pay your $100 enrollment confirmation deposit. You can learn more about accepting your AAO here.
It is highly recommended to review your Student Center and SF State student email regularly before orientation for any alerts, account holds, and campus updates that may need to be addressed before you arrive for orientation.
