Spring Orientation is a structured program that offers new students and transfer students the opportunity to establish a link with faculty in their intended major, become familiar with the campus and the array of academic and campus life programs available and "take care of business" to prepare for move-in. 

We are constantly watching the ever-changing circumstances surrounding COVID-19. In our continued efforts to keep our families safe, Georgia College will hold our Spring Orientation Session virtually.
