First-Year Student Orientation Programs
First-Year Student Orientation Sessions (Required)
All incoming first-year students are required to attend either a virtual or in-person orientation session prior to the start of the spring semester. This semester, we are offering first-year students an opportunity to attend both if they would like! Each program will help students prepare for their first semester. Attending both sessions will offer students a more in-depth and comprehensive experience.
- Tuesday, December 14th, 2021, 10am- 12pm, Virtual (students who attend the virtual session will also be encouraged to attend the January 5th session).
- *Wednesday, January 12th, 2022, 10am- 2pm, In-Person
Registration will be available prior to December 1st.
Digital Orientation (Asynchronous Platform)
All new students are enrolled in Digital Orientation n which can be accessed via Blackboard (MySCSU>Blackboard>Organizations>Digital Orientation). This asynchronous platform is specifically designed to complement the virtual and in-person programs. Through Digital Orientation, students can learn more about the resources and opportunities available to students. New students will be enrolled in segments once they have been registered for courses. Please contact Orientation, Transition and Family Engagement if you have yet to be added.
