For the health and safety of the Grand Valley community, Advising & Registration sessions are being conducted remotely. Advisors are working with students through a combination of email, phone and Zoom. They are still here to support your transition to GVSU and get all your questions answered, even though you won’t be meeting in person.

You will still need to sign up for an Advising & Registration session at the links below. Your advisor will be in touch with specific information about how your Advising & Registration session will be conducted and how to prepare.
