Welcome to the Office of New Student and Parent Programs

We are pleased that you have chosen to become part of our community, and we look forward to assisting you in your transition to life at SDSU.  As a department within the Division of Student Affairs, our programs are intended to assist students and parents in understanding the goals and expectations of this dynamic university community, and to introduce you to the valuable services and programs available on campus.  

We support new SDSU students in the achievement of their academic goals and enrich their university experience through quality orientation programs in preparation for their academic journey.

We provide programs and services to parents of SDSU students through our Aztec Parent programs.  We are committed to:

  • Ensuring a smooth transition to the university experience
  • Keeping you informed about SDSU
  • Connecting you to our Aztec family
  • Opening channels of communication between you and the university
  • Enhancing student programs based on your feedback

We respond to changing student needs, expectations, and resources through evaluation of New Student and Parent Programs services and communications.
