Veterans Orientation

“This was a great introduction to Sac State for veterans. It made me feel like the school welcomed us, and the institution truly cares about our needs. I thank you, and hope you keep this up for my brothers and sisters who will enroll in the future!”


“The orientation was well organized and helped calm my nerves about starting here.”

Dear Student Veteran,

At Sacramento State, we pride ourselves in showing you the same dedication that you have shown your country during your years of service. It is our goal to help you transition into university life so you may be able to enjoy all Sac State has to offer. Since New Student Orientation is required for all incoming students, we have developed a unique Veterans Orientation program to help ease your transition.

Veteran Orientation will take place on Thursday, June 5th from 8:00am-5:00pm. During this session, we will provide structured advising sessions that will introduce you to Sac State General Education and major course requirements.  In addition, we will provide a campus tour, assist you with course registration,  and help you become familiar with campus resources and services.

During Orientation, the Veteran Success Center  staff will provide information on Sac State veteran programs and assist you in completing your VA benefits.

Veteran Orientation is only open to students who are currently serving or have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. 

New Student Orientation will begin to take reservations for Veteran Orientation in early April. We look forward to seeing you on June 5th.
