Office of New Student and Family Programs

Supporting new students and their families during their transition to the university.

The Office of New Student & Family Programs mission is to assist students and their families in their transition into the Fresno State community of scholars. Providing experiences and programming to help you acclimate to the university and foster a sense of Bulldog pride. Our ultimate goal is to provide students and families with support, maximizing opportunities for students' personal growth and life long success.


The Office of New Student and Family Programs, or NSFP, is comprised of four programs:

  • Dog Days: New Student Orientation
  • Family Association
  • MentorU
  • Transfer Success Center

Each of these programs provides a variety of services such as workshops, events, and peer mentoring. Whether you are a freshmen, transfer student, or a student supporter, our office is here to serve as a resource. Fresno State can feel like a daunting place but we are here to help you navigate the campus and get connected. Student success is at the heart of all we do.
