Welcome new transfer H&A Spartans! We at the H&A Student Success Center are extremely excited in welcoming you to SJSU. Orientation is required for all new students and must participate in its full duration. Don't miss any of the important dates. Any changes to the information here will be updated as soon as possible.


Get Ready

To prepare you for Orientation and Registration, the HASSC team developed the Humanities and the Arts Transfer Orientation course in Canvas.  Please accept this canvas course to learn about degree requirements and to explore and find resources you'll need for a successful transition to SJSU. The modules are designed to guide you on the registration process and provide you recommendations on what a good workload for your first semester at SJSU could look like.
