Freshman Incept

Freshman New Student Orientation

Freshmen can pick from three different orientation options. Each orientation option includes the same information but has a different structure. Students who attend a One Day or Freshman and Transfer combined session will have to schedule all placement exams before their orientation day. Freshmen are required to stay at orientation for the entire day, and allowances cannot be made for students to leave early.

A registration fee is required for all orientation options for incoming freshman and transfer students. This fee covers the expense of meals, printed materials and other administrative costs. The fee is not covered by scholarships, including HOPE, or financial aid. A separate registration fee is required for parents, family and guests. Each student may register up to two guests.

Freshman Overnight
Students stay in a residence hall along with future classmates and get a chance to experience life on campus.  This option for incoming freshman and their guests. The program will include additional activities which allow students to get connected to campus life, peers and the Georgia State community. Additionally, students may take the math and chemistry placement exams during the morning of the first day. This is a great option whether you decide to live on campus or commute.
