University Orientation

Orientation is one of the best – and most fun – ways to prepare for life as a Falcon.

Choosing BGSU

Registering for orientation is an important step in choosing BGSU. For first-year students living on campus, the another important step is signing the housing agreement and making the $200 initial housing payment. Learn more about these two important enrollment steps→

Once you make your orientation reservation, you will begin to receive communication in the coming months about turning in final transcripts, paying your bill and getting ready to become a BGSU Falcon.  

Orientation is also a great time to meet Future Falcons, interact with orientation leaders (current students at BGSU) and get support for the whole family.  

The journey begins after you make your orientation reservation.
