Required Online Modules

As a new student, you are required to complete modules as part of the BGSU multi-step orientation process that complement what you learn and experience during University Orientation.

The module series will be assigned to you after you attend orientation and you will be required to complete the series by the assigned deadline.

You will complete online modules that will teach you more about the BGSU community, help you discover resources and prepare you for success in and out of the classroom.
