Admission - Orientation
Orientation is an important first step to help new students learn to navigate SJSU, register for classes, and make the connections they need to be successful! These mandatory programs assist new students with making the transition to college. Orientation is delivered collaboratively by two SJSU departments, Academic Advising and Retention Services and Student Involvement. These departments work with new students at Orientation and beyond by utilizing student leaders who are trained in issues of transition. At the program, professional staff advise students about required General Education courses, major courses, and prerequisites. Orientation staff who are knowledgeable about the campus will guide students and parents/guardians through experiences that educate them about campus programs and services.
The International Programs and Services Office presents a required program for new international students that serves as a check-in for immigration procedures and an introduction to study in the U.S. and SJSU.
