Transfer Orientation

Transfer orientation is a program designed to familiarize new transfer students to SSU by providing information about the campus, departments and resources that are available to them at Sonoma State. This year, our Orientation program will be delivered to you in an online and virtual format.

Orientation is required for all incoming students. During Transfer Orientation, you will learn about the variety of resources and services available to you on campus, and important academic requirements. You will also get a chance to meet with school advisors and faculty to help prepare for class registration. 

During Transfer Orientation, you will receive a registration appointment to register for classes. You can find your registration appointment for class registration on the Student Center section of your MySSU student portal. If you do not participate in an orientation session, a hold will be placed on your account, restricting you from enrolling in classes.

***PLEASE NOTE: The dates you see when you select the online workshop that you want to participate in, are the start and end dates in which you are expected to complete the required information; the hours listed are the times that live sessions will be hosted and campus partners will be available to speak to.  Rest assured, it DOES NOT mean you will be online all day every day during those time frames for Orientation.
