New Student Otter Orientation

Supporter Schedule

Congratulations parents, guardians, siblings, partners, extended family and friends, you are now officially a Supporter to a CSUMB Otter!

Being a good supporter means learning about the resources available to your student and helping to keep your student engaged throughout their time at CSUMB.

We designed the Supporter track just for you! During both our Transfer and Freshmen Programs, we have a Supporter program with information specific to those supporting new students at CSUMB. Please be aware there will be sessions you attend with your student and sessions you attend on your own. Come ready to learn about CSUMB and becoming part of the Otter family!

Como ser un Apoyo

Padres, tutores, hermanos, parejas, amigos y familia extendida ¡Felicidades! Eres oficialmente un apoyo para el estudiante de la Universidad de la Bahía de Monterey.

Para poder ser un buen apoyo, debemos aprender acerca de los recursos disponibles y al alcance del estudiante que acaba de integrarse a la Universidad de la Bahía de Monterey. Así mismo para ayudarlo a mantenerse participativo en la universidad durante su primer año y los consecuentes.

¿Estas interesado en acompañar a tu estudiante a la orientación para las nuevas nutrias marinas? ¡Fantástico! Hemos diseñado un programa especialmente para todos aquellos que quieran apoyar al estudiante con información. Queremos que sepan que durante la orientación, habrá sesiones en las cuales estará con el estudiante y algunas otras de manera individual. ¡Vengan listos para aprender más acerca de la Universidad de la Bahía de Monterey y para formar parte de la Familia Nutria Marina!

Debido a la capacidad y por lo dispuesto en la FERPA (Ley de Derechos Educativos y de Confidencialidad de la Familia) Familiares, padres, tutores y todos los que apoyan a estudiantes que no son permitidos a acompañar al estudiante cuando se está inscribiendo a clases.

Tenga en cuenta que es un corto paseo con subida del estacionamiento designado a nuestra ubicación en el registro de entrada en el centro de la universidad. Por último, le sugerimos que en caso de necesitar ayuda con transporte, por favor haga saber a los líderes de orientación a su llegada.

Para alojamientos de discapacidad, solicitación de intérprete de lengua de signos o para cualquier pregunta por favor infórmenos al menos un mes antes de su sesión de orientación llamando al (831)582-4693 o por correo electrónico a orientation@csumb.edu
