WKSP 002 Online Orientation for New Students

After completing admission requirements and receiving notification of acceptance to Metro State, degree-seeking students are required to register for and complete Online Orientation. This must be completed prior to being able to register for classes. Online Orientation introduces students to academic support systems, GELS (general education/liberal studies) requirements, creative learning strategies, career services, scholarship and financial aid information, diagnostic assessment information, advising and student services, and student clubs and programs and much more. Additionally, you may choose to attend an optional on-campus New Student Orientation and Group Advising and Registration (GAR) session. GAR sessions provide students group level advising and the chance to meet in their college groups to receive program major and minor information.
