Registration for GSO

Bowling Green State University's Graduate Student Orientation (GSO) program is designed to acclimate new graduate students to the campus resources in order to foster community engagement and ensure student success. GSO provides initial training for students with first-time assistantships to ensure compliance with institutional policies as well as a successful start to their career. All graduate students are encouraged to attend GSO and is required for graduate students receiving their first assistantship contract from BGSU.

All incoming graduate students (summer and fall) and first-time assistants need to register for GSO.
