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.

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 students are invited to visit our self-paced orientation webpage to learn about resources for the graduate community.

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.

If we don’t have the answer, we’ll help you find someone who does. Contact us with questions. Your departmental graduate representative is the best place to get information about their program or courses.
