Transfer, Veteran, & Returning Adult Student Orientation

Transfer, Veteran, & Returning Adult Student Orientation

TVRAS In-Person Orientation

At GU we ask all incoming students to attend a Student Orientation the weekend of August 28th. We know you come to GU with amazing educational, and life experiences, and we honor that. With that in mind, we have designed an in-person TVRAS New Student Orientation for you on Friday, August 28th from 8:30 AM- Noon.  Following the event you are welcome to pop into other new student orientation sessions.  

New Transfer, Veteran and Returning Adult (TVRAS) Orientation is designed for new students who have spent some time in college and need a shorter, more GU specific orientation. This orientation will take place on Friday from 8:30-Noon on campus. Students that attend the TVRAS orientation, may opt into other orientation and welcome activities. 

If things have changed, and virtual transfer orientation is better for you, or you’d prefer to attend the longer, more traditional New Student Orientation, (designed for students who have spent less than a year in college and/or are looking for a more traditional orientation experience), just let me know in this form.
