We are so excited to help you navigate the next chapter of your GVSU journey. New Student Orientation is required and is intended to help you transition into life as a GV Laker. Signing up for Orientation and paying the Orientation fee is also how you indicate your commitment to attend GVSU. We host distinct Orientation experiences for first year students and transfer students, unique to each group's needs. Both Orientation types include time with an academic advisor to register for classes. Your next step is to sign up for Orientation through the link below. Please note that you will receive additional information in advance to help you prepare.

We are very excited for you to join Grand Valley State, and look forward to seeing you soon!



The Orientation fee is $150 for incoming freshmen and $100 for incoming transfer students. If you are having difficulty paying the orientation fee, please contact the Admissions and Recruitment Office at (616) 331-2025 or at [email protected].
