New Student & Sophomore Programs
The Office of New Student & Sophomore Programs fosters the successful transition and engagement of new and continuing students into the Georgia Tech community.
FASET is Georgia Tech's orientation program for new undergraduate students (first-year, exchange, and transfers) as well as their parents, family members, and guests. FASET has been a Georgia Tech tradition since 1972. Orientation sessions are offered at the start of each semester for transfer students and during the summer for incoming first-year students.
During orientation new students will receive academic advisement, register for their first semester of courses, and complete other business items. In addition, Georgia Tech faculty, staff, and administrators will discuss important campus services, student organizations, the undergraduate curriculum, and academic programs. Most importantly, students, parents, and guests will have an opportunity to meet and interact with current Tech students as well as to get to know other new students, parents, and guests.
