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.

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, learn about programs and services and you will register for classes. Attending Orientation will help you get on the fast track to completing your degree.

Transfer Orientation for Spring 2024 students will take place in Winter 2024. Check back in October for more details.

Child Care

Students who need childcare (ages 6 months - kindergarten) during Orientation may arrange for free child care from the ASI Children's Center. This is based on space availability. More details to come in October 2023.
