Registration for ROAR Orientation
As a new Cougar, you'll be required to experience our ROAR program before you can attend classes. The ROAR (Recruitment, Orientation, Advisement, Registration) program is a two day event designed to help ease the transition from high school to college as well as prepare parents for their student's new journey. ROAR provides students and parents with information on all services CSU has to offer, as well as their first advising and registration session for their classes. Below are the descriptions of the programs that we offer. Please review and select the one that best fits your enrollment status.
