Missed Orientation (Transfer) Winter 2021

Welcome Transfers!

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

Orientation for new students is optional, however, early academic advising and registration were available to those who participated in our virtual Orientation LIVE! sessions. Since the orientation dates have now passed, 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.
