Spring Orientation

This program is especially designed for incoming first-year and transfer students for Spring 2019, to get essential information you need to make a smooth transition to USD. Our goal is for you to:

  • Get Informed: Find out about the history, mission and core values that make USD a unique place.
  • Meet Your Fan Club: Meet the student leaders and staff here to support you as a new transfer student this semester and beyond.
  • Find Your Place: Learn about how you can get involved in the Torero community and connect with other new and continuing students.
  • Learn the Ropes: Receive essential information about requirements, resources, and campus departments to ensure you have a great start at USD. 

All new students are expected to attend Spring Orientation. Be sure to confirm your attendance in your MySanDiego Portal by January 15 and let us know about any accommodations you may require in advance of Spring Orientation.
