Orientation is a fee based program, meaning, without the fee, we cannot offer this service to our new students. Therefore, we have strict policies in place to ensure we receive these fees. When students make an Orientation reservation in MyCSUSM, the Orientation fee will be automatically charged to the student account. Students must pay the Orientation fee prior to attending their reserved session. Please do not send payment prior to a reservation being made. Students who have not paid the Orientation fee within a week of their scheduled session will not be permitted to attend.
First Year Student Orientation: $95 per student
Transfer Student Orientation: $70 per student
Family Orientation: $45 per guest (up to 2 guests may attend)*
*Family Orientation sessions are only offered during selected First Year Orientation sessions. Guests are otherwise not permitted at Orientation.
