What is Incept:  New Student Orientation?
Incept: New Student Orientation is the official Georgia State University new undergraduate student orientation program. Incept is required for new freshman and strongly encouraged for new transfer students. Our programs are designed to introduce you to the unique world of Georgia State and prepare you to make the most of both your academic and co-curricular experiences.

We offer several Incept options which can meet your specific needs at a time that’s convenient to your schedule. We offer one day and two day orientation programs for new freshman students and one day and ½ day orientation programs for new transfer students. There is also a special parent and guest orientation program which runs concurrently with all student programs.

Don’t just take our word for it! Read what students who’ve been to Incept have to say about their experience.

“At Incept, I met one of my future roommates and became excited to start my experience.  He and I are still best friends and love what this school has to offer!” Kyle McNatt, Sophomore, Accounting

“Because of Incept, I became much more comfortable with my choice to transfer to Georgia State.  I fell in love with this University at Incept, and I know that because I went to Incept I adjusted better than some other transfer students that didn’t attend.” Brandi Giles, Junior, Journalism
