New Student Orientation is Georgia State’s official undergraduate student orientation program. Attendance is required for incoming freshmen and strongly encouraged for transfer students. Orientation introduces new students to Georgia State and prepares them to make the most of their academic and cocurricular experiences. We offer multiple orientation dates to meet students’ needs and schedules. Incoming Atlanta Campus freshmen participate in one full-day session, while transfer students and new Perimeter College students participate in one half-day session. A Parent, Family & Guest Orientation program runs concurrently with all student programs.

Become An Orientation Leader
The recruitment and selection process for leaders of New Student Orientation starts each fall semester. If interested, you should first attend an information session to learn about leadership requirements and benefits. You’ll discuss the application and selection process and hear from current orientation leaders about their experiences. Information session dates will be posted in January.
To be eligible to become an orientation leader, you must maintain a minimum 2.5 GPA and remain in good standing for academics and conduct before and after selection.
The application for orientation leaders on the Atlanta Campus has closed. Please check back in late January to access the Perimeter College application through the Panther Involvement Network .
