Transfer & Non-Traditional Orientation

Transfer & Non-traditional Orientation is a one day program created to meet the needs of transfer and non-traditional students. Non-traditional students are classified as anyone who has been out of highschool or college for five years or more. If you are not classified as a Non-traditional or a Transfer student and you think you should be- please contact our office: 678-839-4739.   During the 1-day experience, you will have the opportunity to meet members of faculty, meet other incoming students, and learn about university resources.  The program will introduce you to your academic college and with an academic advisor in your area of study.  Upon the completion of the orientation registration questionnaire a dedicated team will develop a pre-made class schedule in which you will receive at check-in.
