Welcome to the Gator Family! 

Welcome new Gators! New Student Programs (NSP) assists new SFSU students in the transition to college academics and campus community.

Registration is required for all orientation sessions!

Fall 2018 Students 

Orientation is a collaborative effort consisting of academic counselors, student leaders, and many student service staff members. While at orientation you will have the opportunity to participate in discussions with fellow new students, their parents and/or guests, and faculty and staff on the expectations, transitions, and contemporary perceptions of academics and college life. You are going to meet a diversity of support staff at your orientation session and feel free to ask questions or discuss your academic plans.

In order to sign up for an orientation, you should first accept your admission offer (AAO). You can preview the orientation session dates here.
