New Student Orientation

All entering new students are required to attend an Orientation program at California State University, Bakersfield.  Orientation is required to familiarize yourself with the university.  It is the opportunity to meet with administrators, faculty and staff.  You will hear from many student service programs, academic departments and student clubs and organizations designed to assist and help you while you are attending CSUB.  It will also be the perfect time to establish new relationships with other students with similar goals and aspirations.  As we say here at CSUB, "It's Your University."

Guidelines to attend any New Student Orientation:

  • You must be admitted to CSUB in order to attend an Orientation program.
  • You must sign-up (either online or by mail) for Orientation by the deadline.
  • There will be no admittance to the Orientation if you have not completed the steps above.
  • Unless exempt, you must have taken the EPT/ELM test and have scores on file at CSUB before you register for classes (Freshmen only). Advising information.
  • NO WALK-INS WILL BE ADMITTED.
