New Graduate Student Orientation

SDSU’s university-wide New Graduate Student Orientation for Fall 2022 admits will be held in August. This is an optional program that you can choose to pay for, but are not required to do so. We recommend that you talk with your program director or graduate advisor if you have questions. You will have the option to select one of three dates, including a hybrid option for those unable to attend in person. 

The First Year Experience fee is $300, which helps cover New Graduate Student Orientation, and will be charged to your my.SDSU account on August 5th and due on August 15th. The fee includes the pre-orientation modules, your orientation date, and first year experience activities for graduate students.
