New Native Student Orientation

Orientation is offered for incoming students, freshman and transfers, to help transition successfully to Berkeley by giving you a little head start.

We partner with the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) to give you early access to academic advisors, who will look over your fall schedules and help you pick a managable and strategic course load for your first semester. Orientation will also provide you with an opportunity to interface with support services (Financial Aid, the Student Learning Center, the Tang Center), map locations of your classes, get to know campus, meet continuing Cal Native students and other new Native students and have a little fun before classes start. 

Another bonus for those attending orientation: If you're going to be living in the Residential Halls, you will be eligible for early move-in at no extra cost. You can still join us for orientation without early move in. Please join us!
