This orientation is for students who have previously attended CSUSM, took a period of time off, and are now returning. Students that were considered part of CSUSM Extended Learning (EL) or Open University are not considered "Returning Students".
If it has been more than three years since you last attended a CSUSM Orientation, you must attend Orientation again. Extended Learning Orientation and Temecula Campus Orientation are separate and do not classify as previously attending a CSUSM University Orientation.
If it has been less than three years since you last attended a CSUSM Orientation, you do not need to attend Orientation again. However, the CSUSM community is constantly changing and you are encouraged to attend.
