 Advising/Registration Mail-In Form

The transfer registration is designed for students to meet with an advisor and register for courses. There is not a parent orientation available on transfer registration days. Please plan to attend a campus orientation in August with your family to learn more about the GVSU community. The campus orientation will introduce you to the resources available to you as a Grand Valley student. This program will also give your family members and guests a chance to visit the university with you.
