New Student Programs


Greetings New Students, Parents and Family

Congratulations on your admission to Central Connecticut State University! Our University is home to a diverse, inclusive community, and you will find many opportunities here to make meaningful connections with one another throughout your academic career. We look forward to meeting you during our New Student Orientation events. These include orientations for first year students and transfer students.

First Year Students: Our overnight orientation programs are going to be a time to remember. Many of you have already signed up for an orientation date, and are meeting each other on our social media platforms. If you have not done so, you can visit us on IG & FB “CCSU New Student Programs”, and “CCSU Class of 2023” on FB.

*Don’t forget to complete your Course Selection Inventory (CSI)- this is what our academic advisors are using to create your schedules. Don’t wait on this! You will meet with your advisor at Orientation, and finalize your academic schedule.

Transfer Students: We are excited to welcome you to our Blue Devil family, and have planned 3 orientation program dates for you to choose from. Check your email for instructions on how to select your Orientation Date. (this is different from your Transfer Advising Session, which you are setting up with your school)

Over the course of your orientation sessions, you will connect with other new Blue Devils, learn about campus resources, and become CCSU Connected, but meeting many of our student leaders and dedicated staff & faculty. Above all, we hope you will have fun and make friends that last a lifetime.

If you have not received any communication from our office, and have confirmed your acceptance, please contact us at or (860) 832-1234.

Go Blue Devils!
