Transfer Incept: New Student Orientation
New transfer students can pick from two different Incept formats. Each format covers the same orientation information, but each has a different structure.
Incept Transfer Express: This condensed four-hour program of orientation activities is designed specifically for transfer students seeking a basic introduction to the University, focusing primarily on academic advisement and course registration. Check-in for the Transfer Express conference is 7–7:55 a.m. in the Student Recreation Center (101 Piedmont Avenue). The conference will last until 12:30 p.m.
Freshmen/Transfer Combination: This conference is a full day of orientation activities and is designed for students who are unable to attend Transfer Express programs or would like a more in-depth introduction to the University. Students are strongly encouraged to attend a transfer-specific conference over the Combination option. Check-in for the Combination conference is 7–7:55 a.m. in the Student Recreation Center (101 Piedmont Avenue). The conference will last until 5 p.m. Please note that there is no Transfer Express option during the Combination program.
Note: New transfer students entering in the summer semester will only have the freshmen/transfer Combination format to choose from.
Georgia State has designed a mandatory online pre-orientation to help new transfer students understand more about Georgia State policies and procedures. For more information, go to Online Pre-Orientation for Transfers.
