I have received my acceptance packet from UGA. Do all of the items on the “Next Steps” flyer included in the packet pertain to me since I will be a student at UGA Griffin?
All transfer students regardless of which campus they will attend must complete steps #1 (Create your UGA MyID password and profile) and #4 (Create your UGAMail email account for future correspondence). An applicant admitted to a degree program at the Griffin Campus is not required to submit the $100.00 Commitment Deposit/Orientation Fee. Nor does a Griffin Campus student need to attend a Transfer Orientation session on the Athens campus. UGA Griffin hosts it's own New Student Orientation (NSO) prior to the first day of classes each fall and spring. Once you are admitted to UGA and are identified as a Griffin Campus student, you will receive an invitation to New Student Orientation at UGA Griffin.

Other steps that must be completed by a new transfer student to UGA regardless of campus include:

What hours are the computer lab available to students?
The computer lab will be open for students 24/7. The only times that it will not be available is when a class is scheduled for that room. If the door is locked and it is after hours, students can call security to unlock the door or contact Misty Smith to request an access card.
