Providing new students with valuable information and opportunities to connect with their community as they acclimate to life as a Laker!

Our Transitions Orientation program consists of online orientation modules, a virtual meeting, and a small group session prior to the start of classes.

Directions will be sent to students through their GVSU student email accounts.

First-year students are required to participate.

The Transitions fall 2021 schedule should be available soon! Please check back later for updates.

If you need special accommodations to participate in Transitions, please contact dsrgvsu@gvsu.edu
