If you are a Freshman, Dual Enrolled, or Transfer student new to East Georgia State College, you must participate in an online pre-orientation to get important information that will help you succeed here at EGSC. This online pre-orientation must be completed prior to attending an in-person orientation at one of our three campus locations. The pre-orientation provides students with information about the many resources available at EGSC. Students will learn about student services, online courses, EGSC policies, and other student support programs. Online pre-orientation is mandatory for all new students as it is required to be able to register for classes. Failure to do so will delay your registration and you will not be permitted to attend an in-person student orientation nor be allowed register for classes.
You must review the entire presentation, fill out a completion form, and complete a survey. Average time for completion is about 1 hour and 30 minutes. At the end of the presentation, you will be directed to submit the Orientation completion form. Once the form has been submitted, your Orientation hold will be removed and you will be allowed to register for classes at Orientation.
- First, watch the Online Pre-Orientation presentation (To watch the presentation, you will need a computer (desktop or laptop). Unfortunately, other devices such as cell phones, iPads, Surface, and other tablets, will not work.)
- Next, fill out and submit the pre-Orientation completion form (To view and/or edit this document you will need the free Adobe Acrobat Reader for computer and for mobile. If you have problems with Acrobat Reader, click here for Acrobat Reader customer support.)
- Finally, fill out the pre-Registration survey (New student registration occurs each and every Wednesday.)
ONLINE Only Students
Students taking only online courses are required to watch the online pre-orientation presentation AND submit the completion form. Once the completion form has been submitted, your Orientation hold will be removed and you will be allowed to register for classes. You will then need to contact the Academic Center for Excellence (ACE) to set up your advisement and registration. For students accepted into the RN-BSN Bridge Progam, contact Dr. Linda Upchurch for advisement and for FESA applicants, please contact Beverly Walker.
Transients and Former Students
Transients, Former Students, Post-Bacc, and Non-Degree seeking students are not required to attend an in-person Orientation but are strongly encouraged to complete the online pre-orientation presentation. Reviewing the information will acclimate you to any information that may have changed or may be different from your previous institution.
