Getting Started for New Students

Welcome! Let’s get started

Many congratulations to you on your admission. We are happy to have you here at Colorado State University. There are plenty of resources for new students; start browsing our pages. It is a lot of information, but don’t get overwhelmed. We’re here to help if you need us.

  • STEPS ONCE ADMITTED This page will help explain some of the tasks you’ll need to take care of before you start classes. Be in contact with your department; also, they may have a list of fun things to take care of as well.
  • NEW STUDENT ORIENTATION Every fall we host a new student orientation to introduce graduate students to a multitude of resources offered by CSU. If you can’t make it, please feel free to check out our presentations of prior sessions.
  • POLICIES, PROCEDURES, AND FORMS Rules, rules, rules. And the forms are free to download: what a treat!
  • CAMPUS LIFE You probably don’t want to spend every waking moment studying up for your classes? Start exploring the great things to do on and off-campus.
