Getting Started

Both getting started and coming back to college can be daunting processes.

At the Meijer Campus in Holland, we are ready to help you every step of the way. Working with an academic advisor is the best way to ensure you get started on the right path to meet your goals.

Getting Started is Easy


Applying to Grand Valley

We strongly encourage that you speak with an advisor prior to applying for admission in order to ensure that you complete the appropriate application to assist you in meeting your educational goals. 

  • Transfer and Exploratory Study applicants must apply and be accepted no later than one month before the beginning of the semester of anticipated attendance.
  • There is no time restriction for graduate level applicants.
  • Applications are available at the Holland Campus front desk or online

Returning Students

If you've attended GVSU in the past, the process to return is simple! If you left in good academic standing, simply call the Registrar's Office at 616-331-3327 and tell them you'd like to return to Grand Valley! If you did not leave in good standing, you'll need to complete a petition to return form.
