Welcome New Coyotes!

California State University, San Bernardino's Orientation and First-Year Experience Office is here to welcome you and help with your transition into CSUSB. Student Orientation Advising and Registration (SOAR) is our mandatory orientation program for all newly admitted students into CSUSB.

SOAR will be your first real taste of life as a new coyote. SOAR will help you begin to feel at home on campus and help you become familiar with the wide range of academic opportunities available at CSUSB.

Orientation information varies between freshman and transfer students and is specific for the campus you will be taking your classes (San Bernardino or Palm Desert Campus). Please choose links above that are appropriate for you.
