FIRST CONTACT ORIENTATION


First Contact is a free, mandatory orientation organized by the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP). It is designed for all newly admitted SDSU/EOP students (first-time freshmen and community college transfers) and should not be confused with San Diego State University’s (SDSU) New Student Orientation, which is designed to reach all new, incoming SDSU students. For more information visit: www.sdsu.edu/orientation


At First Contact incoming students meet their EOP Counselors in a special session. At this session Counselors discuss program policies and procedures, expectations and additional services. These include:



During First Contact students review and sign the EOP Student-Program Agreement, which highlights EOP services, policies and procedures, as well as expectations for student participation, all of which help to ensure academic success.

Our staff will do their best to schedule your first First Contact date selection. Given the large volume of new students, please remain open to an alternate date. Check your email regularly.


Summer EOP First Contact has now closed. If you were unable to attend, we will email you as we approach the fall semester for make-up sessions. Please check your emails regularly including spam and junk folders.


EOP First Contact Registration for students attending the SDSU Imperial Valley Campus opens on July 20th





Please register early. Each registration date will close five working days prior to event or when registration reaches capacity.
