Frosh Orientation 

Welcome to San José State University!

Whether nervous or excited, there are a lot of details when starting college for the first time or transferring to a new campus. Some of these include registering for classes, obtaining parking and housing, and learning your way around.

We know that these are big adjustments and offer several programs and activities to get you off to a great start. Our programs will provide you with important information and a chance to meet fellow students, faculty, and staff who want to get to know you and help in your career as a Spartan!

If payment is not received by the date noted in your admit letter, your registration will be canceled and you may be blocked from enrolling in classes at SJSU.
