Through a series of online modules, East Georgia State's Online Orientation kicks off your on-boarding experience at the university. To complete the modules, you will need your student ID and email. These two items will be critical as you access PAWS, your student email account and other university systems moving forward. 

Once you’ve completed the online program modules, you’ll find a screen that lists your required next steps, which are based on your specific student type (each of which is defined below). Note that all first-year students can only register for their required in-person orientation at the completion of the online modules.

Because orientation can make a significant difference in a student's success and persistence in college, students should visit the online orientation as often as needed to ensure a successful transition and integration into college life at EGSC. Family members are welcome to also review the information with you. After completion of the orientation modules, you should:

  • Gain a better understanding of the personal and financial responsibilities of attending college
  • Learn about campus services, activities, academic resources, and the college experience 
  • Learn about completing college business, such as getting your CatCard, talking to Housing, Financial Aid, Student Accounts, etc
  • Find ways to get involved on campus
  • Understand what is expected of you as a student at EGSC

Complete Online Orientation

First-Year Students

All first-year students on are required to complete Online Orientation and then register for your required in-person New Student Orientation (NSO) date. You cannot register for your in-person NSO event until you’ve fully completed the online modules.
 

Transient, Postbaccalaureate and ReAdmit/Former Students

Transient, postbaccalaureate, and former students are only required to complete the online modules — not New Student Orientation. Your online orientation hold will be removed within 24 to 48 hours of completion. If you need assistance with course selection and registration, make an appointment with an academic adviser through the myEGSC portal in the GradesFirst app.
 
 

Dual-Enrollment Students

Dual-enrollment students are required to complete online Orientation and the Dual Enrollment coordinator will reach out to the student and high school counselor and provide instructions on completing a dual enrollment advisement form.
