Veterans Orientation

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.

Veterans Orientation will take place on Thursday, June 4th from 8:00am-4:30pm. 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 Veterans Success Center  staff will provide information on Sac State veterans programs and assist you in completing your VA benefits.

Veterans 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 Veterans Orientation on April 1, 2015. We look forward to seeing you on June 4th.

Welcome to Sac State!
