New Student Orientation

Welcome to California State University, San Bernardino! We are excited that you have selected CSUSB to continue with your undergraduate education. The Orientation program is a mandatory program that provides you with key resources to help with your transition into the CSUSB community and your journey toward academic success.

We recognize that the needs of our transfer students differ from that that of our first-year students, and we intentionally design our programs to ensure we are providing you with the information you need to begin your time at CSUSB.

Traditionally, our orientation programs are an in-person experience on campus. However, in response to the ongoing  COVID-19 pandemic, our 2021 orientation programs will be via an online experience to ensure a safe experience for all participants. Orientation and First Year Experience, along with our campus partners, have created a virtual experience for you to ensure a successful transition to CSUSB. 

Navigate through our website by following the Orientation tab at the top, choosing the appropriate campus for which you will be attending (San Bernardino or Palm Desert), and then the program type for your student status (first-year or transfer) to get information and details.
