Bearkat Orientation

Bearkat Orientation is here to help you succeed in your transition. Sam Houston State University’s Bearkat Orientation program is a wonderful opportunity to get questions answered and get started navigating the logistics associated with starting college or transferring from one school to another. It is also an opportunity to make friends and have FUN! The Bearkat Orientation Program hosts organized, purposeful, and positive introduction sessions for all new SHSU students and their families.

All 2020 - 2021 high school graduates are REQUIRED to attend (transfer hours do not count).  Students are encouraged to complete the Accepted Student Checklist prior to orientation. 

Optional for all students who graduated high school BEFORE the 2020-2021 academic year.
