New Student Advising & Registration: Department of Theatre & Dance
Congratulations, and welcome to the Department of Theatre and Dance in the College of the Arts (COTA) at Cal State Fullerton!
Please read through this webpage carefully! It contains very important information about
required orientation and advising sessions for new students this summer of 2022.
Below are the steps to complete your freshmen or transfer student orientation, advising, and registration.
Here are some overview websites about new student orientation:
- All university orientation information here .
- Parent and family orientation here .
- First-time freshman (FTF) here .
- Upper-division transfers (UDT) here .
Here are two overview websites about the Department of Theatre and Dance:
- Theatre and Dance general website here : introduction to the Department and helpful links.
- Theatre and Dance catalog website here : degree programs, requirements, classes, and other offerings.
Although the university gives you the option for either in-person or online orientation, we encourage you as strongly as possible to sign up for in-person orientation! This has three important advantages over online orientation.
- You will be on campus and can orient yourself to the layout and available services.
- You will meet with both a faculty and staff advisor in-person.
- You will end the day with your fall schedule.
In-Person Orientation and Advising
We strongly recommend signing up for in-person orientation and advising. Here are the steps.
- From the CSUF homepage , log into your CSUF student portal using your university-issued username and password (if you have changed your password from the one originally assigned, use that new password).
- Navigate to the Student Homepage, either via the cube widget top right that opens your list of apps, or scroll down to the section with your Titan Online apps.
- Click on the “Admission” tile.
- Click on the “Orientation” tab on the far-left menu.
- Select either the in-person option (most highly recommended, then select date and complete registration) or the online orientation module option (not recommended, but you will receive the link to the modules). Note that registration for in-person orientation is open until June 2 or until capacity is reached.

Online Orientation and Advising
We do NOT recommend online orientation and advising. However, we understand each person’s situation is unique. If you absolutely cannot attend one of the scheduled in-person orientation days or the make-up day, you must first engage in the interactive orientation learning modules. To access these modules, follow the same steps above for in-person orientation, except in step 5, select the online orientation module option. You will receive the link for the modules. After you have completed those, you must email the following department coordinator to schedule a Zoom advising appointment: Denean Dyson.
If you do not have Zoom, you can activate your free CSUF Zoom account here
. If you have technical difficulties, please contact the IT Student Help Desk
