Our Orientation program is designed for new degree seeking and certificate students. It provides information to support a successful transition to college.

All first time freshman and transfer students with less than 24 earned credit hours, are required to attend orientation. Only fully admitted students can sign-up for an orientation. Additionally, advising and registration for new students is now completed via individual appointments with College Success Advisors.

Parents, guardians and spouses are encouraged to attend, however, please email Orientation@ColumbiaState.edu with the number and names of guests.
