All First Time Freshmen are required to attend FReshman Orientation

Freshman Orientation  is a full-day program where you can meet fellow new students, connect with current CSUF students, faculty, and staff, receive mandatory academic advising, and register for your Fall classes. Orientation sessions last from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, and you are required to attend the entirety of the program.  


Orientation occurs during the months of June and July. Specific orientation dates are assigned to students depending on their major or participation in special programs. We highly encourage you to register for a mandatory orientation session before scheduling any summer commitments, trips or vacation. 

Cost of Attendance:

The cost of attending Freshman Orientation is $85 for students, which covers your meals and materials for the day. A   concurrent Parent and Family Orientation program is also available to parents and family members at an additional fee.

Fee Deferrals: Based on anticipated 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.
