New Student Orientation


New Student Orientation

Make a smooth transition to life at Coppin State University. Before the start of the fall or spring semester, you and your parents and family members can participate in our New Student Orientation to learn about financial aid, registration, advisement, and campus safety and security. You will also make new friends and begin to form relationships with CSU’s faculty and staff. New Student Orientation is mandatory for all new and transfer students.

Nontraditional & Transfer Students

Have you been out of high school for 4+ years? Had at least a 2-year interruption in your undergraduate education? The term "nontraditional" is used to identify students who have personal and professional demands on their lives that make it challenging to meet their academic goals. Our consolidated orientation program is designed to serve students who have limited flexibility.
