You’ve made a huge step in choosing to attend college and better your future. To make sure you’re prepared and ready to take advantage of your investment, we’ve prepared a combination of online and in-person New Student Orientation steps. FGC’s orientation is a journey that can begin when you receive your acceptance letter in the mail. It takes some time on your part to review the resources we’ve prepared for you, but it will be so worth it for your student experience and academic success! The culmination of this journey will occur just before classes begin at New Student Convocation, where we will officially welcome you and your family to our campus.
