First Year Orientation sessions are a full-day program running from 8:00 am-5:00 pm. Options are available for students to attend alone or with guests. All Orientations are major-specific. Date options are available within MyCSUSM once the orientation reservation system is live.
Please Note: If you do not attend an Orientation session, your courses will be dropped in mid-August. You will have an opportunity to register again on the first day of the fall semester. If you need to reschedule your Orientation, call Orientation at (760)750-4930 prior to missing your Orientation session.

Family Orientations run concurrently to student sessions from 8:00 am-5:00 pm and are offered on select First Year Orientation dates. Reservations for up to 2 guests per student are permitted. We also offer Spanish-Speaking Family Orientations on various dates throughout the summer.
