Missed Orientation (Freshmen) Winter 2021

Welcome Freshmen!

We are sorry you were not able to join us for Winter 2021 Orientation...

Orientation for new students is optional, however, early academic advising and registration were available to those who participated in our virtual Orientation LIVE! session on January 7th. We would like to invite you to take advantage of some of the resources SF State has made specifically to prepare you for enrollment in your first semester courses. 


1. Complete Section 1.1 of the iLearn Module "First-Year Orientation 2021" and Register for Classes;

This portion of the module is designed to lead you through 5 steps to determine which classes you should register for in your first semester, including suggestions for your major, GE and other additional graduation requirements at SF State.

  • Part I: Prepare for Class Registration—learn the basics of navigating your Student Center portal
  • Part II: Five Steps for Class Planning—identify the classes you should sign up for next semester
  • Part III: Search and Register for Classes—learn how to use our class registration tools

[[If you do not see "First-Year Orientation 2021", email josephb@sfsu.edu so you can be granted access to the site—include your name, SFSU ID# and indicate that you are a new freshmen student]]


2. Meet with your Academic Advisor;

  • Once you have completed Step 1 above, check your SF State email for a communication from Arman Liwanag, use the included appointment link to schedule a meeting between January 11th-13th. Your counselor will be able to assist you in verifying your Spring 2021 class schedule and address any other academic concerns for your first semester—please be sure to schedule your appointment with him.
  • Scheduling, and attending your appointment will help you prepare for registration—check your SF State Student Center for your date and time to enroll.
