Students on campus

Student Orientation

We understand that as a new CSI student you have questions. You may be looking for opportunities to meet other students and to become familiar with CSI resources that can help you. You may feel you have tasks to complete but are not sure where to start.
We have prepared multiple opportunities for you to complete new student orientation in the way you choose. We recommend joining us in-person at your campus location, if possible! We invite you to come prepared with your questions, ready to meet other students, and learn about how you can achieve your goals as a member of our CSI community.

Face-to-Face Orientation

Need to apply, meet with an enrollment specialist, register for classes, learn how to pay for college? Our staff will be on hand at every event to answer all your questions and help introduce you to resources that can help you. We will also have staff available for FAFSA completion assistance.

In addition, new CSI students will have the chance to tour our beautiful campus (offered at Twin Falls Campus), meet new friends, and participate in fun activities! Light refreshments will be provided, and all students will receive CSI swag!

Live Webinar Orientation

Students taking online courses or those who are unable to make an in-person session, are encouraged to register for a Live Webinar orientation. During this time, you will participate in live presentations highlighting campus resources and can find answers to all your pressing questions, including:

  • How do I pay tuition?
  • Where are my classes?
  • What books do I need?

In this live 2-hour session, you’ll get to meet and interact with fellow students, faculty, and staff! To participate, you will need a computer or smart device and a stable internet connection. Once you sign up, you will be provided with details and a link to join your live orientation webinar.

Online Orientation on my Time

Online orientation is an important resource created to help new CSI students succeed, delivered asynchronously via the web to enable a high degree of choice and accessibility. In this way, you can complete orientation on your own time, whenever it is convenient. Once you are admitted as a new CSI student and have received your CSI login credentials, with a few simple steps you can self-enroll in online orientation using Canvas, our campus learning management system.

Please note – online orientation is currently under development and will be deployed the first week of October 2021.
