Transfer Students


Registration for Summer 2024 Orientation is available. Please check your CSUF email for more updates.

Welcome to Cal State Fullerton! At Orientation, you’ll learn about everything you’ll need for a successful start at CSUF. Orientation is mandatory for all new students to complete.

You can choose one of two ways to complete your mandatory Orientation: In-Person Orientation or Hybrid Orientation.


Option 1: In-Person Orientation

In-Person Orientation is a one-day session that includes a campus tour, presentation from campus partners, opportunities to meet other students, and a resource fair! When you register for Orientation, you will be able to view all dates available to you for you to choose from. Your Academic Advising & Registration Workshop will occur on the same day you chose, during the afternoon. At this workshop, you will meet with an Academic Advisor and register for classes.


Option 2: Hybrid Orientation

Hybrid Orientation includes a 60-minute asynchronous module that walks you through CSUF history, campus resources, how to get involved, and what to expect once you’re on campus. Completion of the online module is due by August 23. You will receive separate communication in the coming weeks from your college regarding instructions on Academic Advising & Registration Workshop and how to sign up for classes.
