Spring Preview

Frequently Asked Questions

Have I completed registration for Spring Preview?
Online registration is open through March 16, 2017. You’ll 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 past the above dates, you’ll see that the system is closed and you should consider being a walk-in registrant.

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. However, it is highly recommended to register online before the event. Please be patient with us as wait times for walk-ins may be lengthy.

Is Spring Preview mandatory for all prospective students?
No. Spring Preview is our annual Open House and a chance for students and their guests to explore Humboldt State University. Anyone interested in HSU is welcome to attend, but the events are directed to admitted and applied students and their families.
