Pre-Orientation Checklist

When you're getting your things ready to leave for orientation, please do not forget to bring the following things that may be helpful on your orientation day.

Item Reason
Complete the "Accept/Decline" Process Be sure to officially accept your admission to Fresno State by the deadline.

Valid photo ID Students must provide a valid, unexpired government photo ID. This can be a state issued identification card, or driver's license, a high school or community college ID, a military ID or passport/visa.  We do not accept photocopies of an ID, or a picture on a cell phone.

ELM & EPT scores If you've received your scores, it may be beneficial when you're talking to a counselor about scheduling classes to have those handy to know what classes you'll need to take.
General Catalog & Class Schedule The Catalog and Class Schedule are both available online for free. Students can access the schedule of classes through their Student Portal.  The Catalog can be viewed here:
High School Transcripts These may be beneficial when trying to get questions answered by admissions, evaluations and/or counselors.
A pen and paper The day will be packed with lots of information; you may find it helpful to take notes.
A copy of your DOG DAYS Confirmation email This is not necessary to bring, but may come in handy during the check-in process in the morning.
Immunization Records The CSU system requires students to show proof of the immunizations for Hepatitis B, and Measles & Rubella. Proof of immunizations can be given to the Health Center during orientation or sent over before the end of your first year.
A sweater or sweatshirt It may be 100 degrees outside, but some of our classrooms and buildings tend to be on the colder side.
Any other correspondence from the university that may aid in answering questions If you have any other business to take care of with other offices on campus, you may want to bring the materials necessary to have those questions answered. You will have time throughout the day to visit other offices and get questions answered.
