You must accept your admission offer and pay the $250 enrollment deposit before you can access the orientation registration system. You must accept your offer of admissions before May 1, 2019.
In-Person Transfer Orientation
In-Person Transfer Orientation is a full-day program and sessions are available based on your major. Atorientation 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 orientation dates are available online, through your Student Portal. Transfer Orientation is a full-day program, and you are required to attend the orientation all day in order to successfully meet your mandatory orientation requirement.
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 an in-person orientation session before scheduling any summer commitments, trips or vacation.
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.
Online Transfer Overview will be available June 21, 2019 for Fall 2019 admits.
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.
