The Orientation program helps new students become familiar with services and programs vital to their successful transition as fully active members of the Sam Houston State University community. These one-day sessions collaborate with other university offices and departments to assist students in gaining the skills, information, and meaningful relationships that are key to successful long-term academic and personal outcomes. All incoming freshmen will complete Academic Advising and Registration at Orientation.
All 2023-2024 high school graduates are REQUIRED to attend orientation regardless of transfer hours acquired. Transfer students are strongly encouraged to take part in an orientation session.
All incoming students receive a personalized Orientation registration link through their SHSU Student Email and via text. Please email email@example.com with any questions or concerns regarding your registration information.
Dates will open for registration in chronological order. Later sessions will not be released for registration until earlier sessions have filled.
