Congratulations on choosing Governors State University as the destination to complete your Bachelors Degree! Transfer Orientation will be your first step to familiarizing yourself to campus and connecting to the university community.

Our half-day transfer orientation will allow you to participate with our talented and energetic Orientation Leaders, who will guide you in your transition to GSU.  You'll also have an opportunity to interact with other transfer students, academic advisors, faculty members and administrators.

This will also be a great chance for you to discover exciting opportunities to become involved in student organizations, volunteer opportunities, support services and many enriching activities offered to GSU students.
