The Freshman Orientation Program is currently undergoing a re-design. This page will be updated during the second semester to provide you with more details on our 2017 Humboldt Orientation Program.

Spring 2017

HOOP is designed for both incoming freshman and transfer students for the spring 2017 semester.

To secure your space in HOOP, you must confirm your intent to enroll at HSU in your Student Center. There is no separate sign-up for HOOP. You will automatically be enrolled in HOOP based on your confirmation of intent to enroll.

HOOP will open at 9:00am on Monday, December 5, 2016 and will close on Friday, December 9 at 5:00pm. All HOOP steps must be completed online during this window.

We are not able to open the orientation before or have it remain open after this window. If you wish to attend HSU in the spring, please be sure to complete the entire process during this week.

HOOP is completed entirely online. You will register for classes as the final step of HOOP. To learn more about the steps, please click on the HOOP link on the right.





The mission of the Humboldt Orientation Program is to communicate what it means to be a member of the Humboldt State community consistent with the university’s mission to maintain academic excellence, prepare students to be socially responsible members of diverse societies, and teach students to use their education to make a positive difference in the world.
