Orientation site is now open for admitted students, and I advise that you read the introduction carefully to make sure you take the proper steps in signing up. Orientation is mandatory for all incoming freshman and transfer students, as this is where students will meet with an advisor, register for classes, etc. There will be three available dates for transfer students (one in December and two in January), and two for freshman (two January dates), and you will both see the dates and select the one that is best for you when you sign up for orientation. Freshman must submit a commitment deposit before signing up for orientation, while for transfers, there is no deposit but orientation is how you let UGA know that you will be attending the University in the Spring. If you are not sure if you will be attending UGA, do not sign up for orientation until you do know your future plans, as you are making a reservation (and paying for it!) and taking up an orientation slot.
