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).

For dates and deadlines for registration for the in-person Transfer Student Orientation (TSO) and access to the Online Transfer Overview (OTO) for the upcoming semester, visit the TSO Dates/Deadlines.

You must accept your admission offer and pay the $250 enrollment deposit before you can access the TSO registration system and/or the OTO. You must accept your offer of admissions before the specified deadline.

Fee Deferrals: Based on ancitipated financial aid, some students may be eligible for a fee deferral at the time of registration. This means that collection of the student's orientation fee will be postponed until financial aid is awarded. A student with an Expected Family Contribution of "0"  is automatically awarded for the deferral if they meet the criteria.

In-person Orientation Dates

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.

TSO sessions and specific dates are available online, through your Student Portal and availability depends on your major.  Most TSO in-person sessions are scheduled around the month of July.  We encourage you to attend in-person and complete our online orientation.

Online transfer overview

As a transfer student you have the option of satisfying your orientation requirement by completing the 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.

Online Transfer Overview will be available June 1st. 

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.

Orientation Registration Instructions

In order to register for the in-person TSO or to access the Online Transfer Overview, you must login through your Student Portal and access Titan Online.

Please note that completing the Online Transfer Overview does not cancel your in-person TSO registration. Cost of attending TSO is $60 and orientation fees are nonrefundable.
