Is the Online Transfer Orientation (OTO) the right option for me?
We strongly recommend you attend in-person orientation as it will provide more hands on experience, opportunity to connect with classmates, familiarize yourself with campus, and begin to get involved with campus life. In-person orientation also provides a chance for you to meet with your academic counselor to discuss course registration and advising. It is in your best interest to prioritize Orientation to ensure a smooth transition to Cal State East Bay. Much like a doctor's appointment, you may need to take time off work or other responsibilities to attend.
However, we understand not everyone can come to campus. If you are unable to attend in-person, the OTO allows you flexibility to complete orientation at your own pace. Much like the in-person option, the OTO provides new students with vital information regarding academics, support services, and how to register. The OTO will provide details on how to contact your academic advisor, but it does not include personalized academic advising. We recommend you schedule an appointment with your advisor in addition to completing the OTO.
