Get Ready

You'll receive an invitation to the Humanities and The Arts Frosh Orientation Canvas course during the second week of June; make sure you keep checking your SJSU email account! Once you accept the course, please review the information before your scheduled orientation. 

The course is designed to help you understand your degree requirements, connect you to resources that you need to make a smooth transition to college, and prepare you to successfully complete the registration process and have a full course load for your first semester at SJSU.

The course includes thematic discussion forums that are designed to build a learning community. Please feel free to submit questions that you might have about your degree or registration in the appropriate discussion forum. 



Frosh orientation is a mandatory two-day event. On day one, you will be engaged in NSFP orientation programming that covers academic tools for success, explores campus resources, and provides an oppurtunity to learn useful tips from orientation leaders. Day two will begin with a College Welcome, a short session that aims to introduce you to the College of Humanities and Arts and the dedicated team of academic advisors who are here to support you from orientation to graduation. You will review degree requirements and work wih an academic advisor to register for Fall 2022 courses. Our goal is to ensure you leave with a full load of courses that you are excited about!

New Student and Family Programs will send you an orientation confirmation letter to your MySJSU Messages one week prior to your scheduled orientation date. You can access your MySJSU Messages via your one.SJSU.edu student portal.
