Parents and Guests Orientation

Welcome

Congratulations. Your student has been admitted to Sacramento State. We are looking forward to meeting them. To prepare them (and you) for their first semester at Sacramento State, we encourage your attendance at New Student Orientation this summer.

Your student has been receiving a lot of information via their My Sac State account. To give you a better understanding of the information and deadlines occurring this fall, visit: What Parents Should Know.

Our Parent and Guardian Program is designed to help you know as much about Sacramento State so you will be in a better position to encourage and support your student. During New Student Orientation, you will learn about the academic requirements students must complete and the various programs and services offered to help them along the way (many of which are free). Come learn how you can help your student succeed and graduate from Sac State.

Which program Do I Attend?

If your student has never attended college or has completed less than 18 units of college credit, join us for First Year Orientation.

If your student has attended college and has completed at least 19 units, join us for Transfer Orientation.
