Parents and Guests Orientation


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

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 along the way (many of which are free). Come learn how you can help your student succeed and graduate from Sac State.

Beginning when your son or daughter applied to Sacramento State, he or she has received a great deal of information via his or her My Sac State account. We know you want to help your student prepare for college, and the list below will help ensure you are aware of important information and timelines so you can help your student be aware as well.
