To welcome and orient you to Cal State San Marcos, we host Orientation Programs for new undergraduates before your first day on campus. We'll introduce you to the staff members who will support you throughout your academic career, and provide you with an opportunity to meet your future classmates and professors. You will also have an opportunity to register for classes for your first semester. First time freshmen and transfer students must attend Orientation in order to register for courses prior to the first day of the Fall 2015 semester.

You will receive additional information with your letter of admission regarding orientation programs. You must submit your Intent to Enroll before registering for an orientation program. Registration instructions and more information can be found on the Orientation Programs website.

New credential and graduate students will be invited to orientation sessions and workshops geared to your needs.  Information will be provided by your academic program or the Office of Graduate Studies and Research.
