Welcome New Hornets

New Student Orientation at Sacramento State assists new students with their transition to campus by providing programs and services that outline the University's academic requirements as well as social and developmental opportunities. Due to the Coronavirus, Orientation will be virtual (but fun and interactive) experience this summer. Orientation is required for all incoming students.

Transfer Orientation will take place June 14-30, 2021.
First Year Orientation will take place July 19-August 5, 2021.

We are excited you are planning to attend Sacramento State this fall, and we want to make sure your transition is as smooth as possible. While our Orientation team is planning your summer Orientation experience in a virtual format, we know you may have questions about what to expect right now! To answer your questions about Orientation, we are hosting a Zoom webinar on each of the Friday dates listed below. This is a way to connect with an Orientation leader, plan your experience, and ask questions. These information sessions are not your mandatory Orientation session, but a great way to kick start your summer preparing for college!
