All first-year and transfer students are required to attend an orientation program. At your online orientation, you will become familiar with campus programs and services, and begin your adventure as a new student.

Please note that it may take up to 48 hours after submitting your enrollment deposit to access orientation registration via your Navigator account. 

All first year students (and transfer students with fewer than 15 credits) will take a first year seminar as part of their academic course load. This three-credit required seminar offers students an opportunity to study an interesting and engaging topic with one of Salem State's outstanding faculty members.

We highly recommend you attend a first year seminar information session prior to making your seminar selection. 

After you have registered for an orientation session, you will be directed to the first year seminar selection process in your Navigator account. Students should choose a first year seminar as soon as possible.

If you have questions, contact the first year experience office at 978.542.2618 or
