After completing admission requirements and receiving notification of acceptance to Metro State, degree-seeking students are required to register for and complete Online Orientation. In addition to completing Online Orientation, you may choose to attend an optional on-campus New Student Orientation and Group Advising and Registration (GAR) session. The New Student Orientation provides an overview of Metropolitan State University, by introducing students to financial aid information, advising, student services, student clubs/programs and much more. The GAR sessions provide students group level advising and the chance to meet in their college groups to receive program major and minor information. Students with 16 or fewer credits or admitted on Academic Probation are required to attend an on-campus GAR session.
