Our staff and instructors want to ensure you have a smooth transition to our campus and to life in the United States. During orientation, we will help you become familiar with our university, the city of Sacramento and your fellow classmates. You will take a language assessment test to ensure appropriate level placement. You will also learn about academic expectations and student life, take a campus tour, and receive your student identification card (also known as OneCard).
Orientation is mandatory for all new students. Be sure you leave sufficient time for your commute and get plenty of rest.
