Charger Orientation

Congratulations
Future Charger!

Here are your next steps to get started at GHC...

Charger Orientation will be delivered in a virtual format for our new Summer & Fall 2021 Students. We have tried to replicate the in-person orientation into a remote format. We know you are excited to get started, and we are excited to help you transition to GHC. We know that this is not the experience you thought you would have, but we promise to make the most of it! We will have “Welcome to Campus” events before the Fall term begins if you would like to also visit us in person.

  2. Live, Virtual Orientation (sign up and attendance is required):

    • All GHC orientations are currently virtual. The live, virtual orientation will be an hour and a half long orientation session.
    • Sign up for a virtual orientation in Check Admissions Status after completing the Pre-Orientation. The Zoom link is in your check admissions status.
  3. Welcome Email:

    • The email will contain useful information to be successful at GHC. It will also include what to expect with course registration.
    • Check your student email inbox soon after signing up for the live, virtual orientation. Complete the tasks listed.
  4. Class Registration:

  5. Welcome to Campus event (attendance is optional):

    • Each GHC site will host a Welcome to Campus Event before the semester begins. The event will consist of a campus tour, a preview of your academic pathway, and an introduction of GHC’s clubs and organizations.
    • This is a completely optional event that you must register for beforehand. This event will not provide individual student assistance like financial aid or registration.
