Welcome to California State University, Chico

Students who are unable to attend our recommended New Student Summer Orientation Program for the fall 2016 semester are encouraged to attend our Express Orientation Session!

The Express-Orientation will be offered in late July and will help assist you with understanding academic requirements.

  • You will not register for classes at an Express-Orientation session, but will receive assistance in choosing classes so you are prepared when registration opens for new students.
  • Express-Orientations are approximately two hours and do not include major specific advising.

Session Dates & Times

Express Orientation sessions are being held on Thursday, July 21st. Check your email the week before for your invitation and directions on how to register for these helpful workshops!

Important Note: Due to room capacity limitations guests of students are not guaranteed a seat in the Express Orientation sessions.

If you are unable to attend one of our Express Orientation Sessions an alternative Online Orientation can be accessed using your Portal log-in.
