Have I completed registration for Spring Preview?
Online registration is open from February 1st 2017-March 17th, 2017, you will know if you have completed registration as the system will prompt you for payment and a final confirmation page will show. A confirmation email will also be sent to the email address that you supply during that process. If you attempt to reserve your space at Spring Preview outside of these dates, you will see that the system is closed and you should consider being a walk-in registrant. Please read that FAQ below to learn more.
Is Spring Preview mandatory for all prospective students?
No. Spring Preview is our annual Open House and a chance for students and guests to explore Humboldt State University. Anyone interested in Spring Preview is welcome to attend. You must be an applied or admitted student to be considered for attendance at our event. Friends and family members of interested students are always welcome. We'd love to see you!
I'm registered for Spring Preview if I registered for Orientation, right?
No. Orientation and Spring Preview are two different events. Spring Preview requires a separate registration and payment in order to attend the event.
I missed the online registration window. Can I attend as a walk-in at the event?
Yes. If you are unable to register before the event you are welcome to check-in at the on-site registration table. It is highly recommended to register online before the event. Please be patient with us as wait times for walk-ins may be lengthy.
I'm only planning on being in Arcata on Saturday. Are there still things to do?
