First-Year Virtual Ram Orientation

Our virtual orientation is a 1 day program that allows students to connect with peers, campus resources, and current students, and participate in group advising and register for classes. Students will participate in a synchronous one day orientation session.

This experience provides students the opportunity to make connections and get their questions answered. This orientation format is offered throughout June and July. To pick the session that best fits your schedule, view the First-Year Virtual Ram Orientation Dates.

Virtual Ram Orientation Process

Virtual Ram Orientation is a 4 step process. Steps 1-3 must be completed to successfully finish orientation. Step 4 is an optional experience that will take place when you arrive in the fall. If you have any questions about completing any of the steps, contact our office.

Step 1: Register for Virtual Ram Orientation

Using your CSU eName and password, sign in to our Orientation Reservations system and select the session that is best for you. There is also a section for you to fill out with any AP, IB, or Dual Enrollment courses you have taken and the scores you earned (or anticipate earning). Be sure to fill out this section as fully as possible to ensure the most helpful Academic Advising and Course Registration experience during Virtual Ram Orientation.

If you would like to register someone for Parent, Family, and Guest Orientation, you will be able to do that during the registration process as well.

Step 2: Complete the Required Orientation Modules

The Required Orientation modules are now open. You will receive a direct link to your CSU email account inbox with information about how to access and complete the Required Orientation modules. These online modules will provide you with information you need to know before attending your Virtual Ram Orientation session. You must complete these online modules at least 1 week before your scheduled Virtual Ram Orientation session.

Step 3: Attend Virtual Ram Orientation

During your 1-day Virtual Ram Orientation session, you will have the opportunity to make connections, get your questions answered and participate in group advising and register for classes.
