Transfer Students

Transfer Orientation sessions are half-day programs running in the morning (8:00 am-1:00 pm) or afternoon (12:00 pm-6:00 pm). Due to space restrictions, guests are not permitted to attend.

Transfer Orientation sessions are major-specific. Date options are available within MyCSUSM once the orientation reservation system is live.

Orientation Reservations:

  • Open: April 2020
  • Close: May 31, 2020

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 semester. If you need to reschedule your Orientation, call our office at (760)750-4930 prior to missing your Orientation session.
