Transfer Student Orientation Registration


As a new Transfer Student, you are required to complete a mandatory orientation requirement which can be satisfied by attending an in-person Transfer Student Orientation (TSO) or completing the Online Transfer Overview (OTO).

Registration for the in-person Transfer Student Orientation (TSO) and access to the Online Transfer Overview (OTO) for spring 2017 admits will become available September 7, 2016. You must accept your admission offer and pay the $250 enrollment deposit before you can access the Transfer Student Orientation registration system and/or the Online Transfer Overview. You must accept your offer of admissions by November 15th, 2016.

In-person Orientation Dates

Transfer Student Orientation (TSO) is a full day program and sessions are available based on your major. At TSO, you will receive advising, participate in a campus tour, and have the opportunity to attend a series of information sessions designed to prepare you for your first semester at CSUF. Breakfast and lunch are provided. Specific TSO dates are available online, through your Student Portal. TSO is a full-day program, and you are required to attend the orientation all day in order to successfully meet your mandatory orientation requirement. Cost of attendance is $60 and orientation fees are nonrefundable.

Spring 2017 Admits: All Spring 2017 admits should complete the Online Transfer Overview (OTO) in order to be eligible to register for classes on the assigned registration window. We encourage you to also attend our in-person Transfer Student Orientation (TSO) in addition to completing OTO.

TSO sessions will be available in December 2016. Specific dates are available online, through your Student Portal and availability depends on your major. We encourage you to attend in-person and complete our Online Transfer Overview.

Online transfer overview

As a transfer student you have the option of satisfying your orientation requirement by completing the Online Transfer Overview (OTO). The OTO is an online module containing an overview of campus resources available for you. OTO does not provide academic advising, and we encourage students to visit the Academic Advising Center as well as your major department. Once you complete the OTO, your orientation hold will be lifted after 24 hours.
If you complete the OTO we still encourage you to attend one of our in-person sessions to receive in-depth information and academic advising to prepare you for your first semester.
