About Transfer Student Orientation

Welcome New Hornet

Congratulations on being admitted to Sac State!

As a new transfer student, you have the opportunity to continue your education in an environment rich with opportunity. Since every university/college is different, your first step is to attend Transfer Orientation. Orientation is required for all new students. Students cannot register for classes until they attend Orientation.

We will be offering on-campus and virtual orientation sessions! During Transfer Orientation, you'll learn how your transfer credit applies towards your major and General Education. In addition, you’ll attend academic advising sessions and register for classes. You will also learn about Sac State programs and services that will support you. Attending Orientation will help you get on the fast track to completing your degree.

We will be offering Zoom information sessions to answer your questions about Orientation.
DATES: November 12, 19 and December 3
TIMES: 3:00pm-4:00pm
