Veteran and Military Transfer Orientation

You are required to attend the transfer orientation program before enrolling at Cal Poly Pomona.  This one-day program includes academic advising and registration.

Because the transfer orientation program does not include information specific to veterans, our online eOrientation program for veterans will supplement the information you receive during the transfer program. 

If your military service or training makes it difficult for you to attend the on-campus program, you may request alternative arrangements for your academic advising and registration.  If approved, completing the online eOrientation for veterans and an academic advising session will satisfy the mandatory orientation requirement.

Next steps

  • Once you have paid your Enrollment Confirmation Deposit, register for your orientation session and pay your fees.  The fees cover both the on-campus program and the eOrientation for veterans.  Register as early as possible to reserve the session that best meets your needs.

  • Contact Orientation Services by phone or email for information about registering for the eOrientation program.  You may complete the eOrientation online either before or after your on-campus orientation.
