• Please keep in mind that students who arrive late will be unable to attend the day’s orientation session and will be asked to reschedule to a later session to fulfill the orientation requirement. All students must attend a New Student Orientation session; if you do not attend one prior to the start of classes, you must reapply for admission to UGA for a future term. If for some reason you experience an emergency the day of your session and will be unable to attend, please contact a member of our teamat 706-870-3464.
