Student Orientation

We are pleased that you are interested in Galveston College and are considering us for advancing your education.  Galveston College is excited to assist you in furthering your educational goals.

Student Orientation is required for all new full-time students registering for credit classes.  Part-time and continuing students are also encouraged to attend. Galveston College is offering seven orientation sessions from which you may choose. Orientation will be held in Room R-250 on:

Tuesday, August 26th 10:00 a.m. – 12: 00 p.m.
5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.

Please select the date and time you would like to attend, and register online below. Free child care will be provided on a space available basis. There will be a free gift for everyone who attends, so it is important that you make your arrangements as soon as possible.

Student Orientation is a priority time that Galveston College has set aside specifically for new students to remove registration holds, be cleared for online registration, meet faculty/staff, ask questions about the college, and learn about available services. Yes, we are allowing our new students an opportunity to register on-line before early registration!  Don’t miss the chance to select the classes you want at the times you need! 

College placement testing is required to determine placement in courses.  Students who have already met the requirements for placement assessment and will not be required to take the COMPASS - please contact Galveston College Counseling Center at (409)944-1220 for more information.  

Thank you for allowing Galveston College to assist you on your Road to Success!
