New Student Orientation

Freshman and Transfer students entering Fall 2020

 

 

Summer 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 Summer Orientation Sessions virtually. Specific details regarding our on-line summer orientation will be shared with our incoming students in the weeks ahead.

Register for Late Orientation

Late Fall Orientation is a shortened version of the summer orientation sessions. Check-in will be held from 12:30 pm-1:00 pm in the Arts & Sciences Atrium, with the session wrapping up around 3 pm. Like the summer sessions, students will have an opportunity to hear from faculty and staff, participate in a Q&A session with Orientation Leaders, and get their bobcat card. More information will be sent out to the email address listed on the registration form prior to the event.
