We are excited that you have been accepted to Georgia Southwestern State University! One of the final steps before starting classes is attending one of our STORM Days. Students and staff will be here to help guide you through life on campus. The day is filled with activities so you can get familiar with your new home away from home.

There will be a morning group and an afternoon group. Please click the link below [when it is made available] to select a date and time and register for STORM Day. Registration will close as capacity is met. Register early to ensure your first choice!

*Each STORM Day is limited to 30 freshmen.
*Students are encouraged to submit their student ID picture prior to arriving at STORM Day.
*Students beginning Summer semester are encouraged to register for the May 21st or June 4th STORM Day so they may complete Summer and Fall registrations at one time.
*Classes are held and placed into blocks specifically designed by major for entering freshmen. Attending a later STORM Day should not negatively impact your class schedule.

Due to COVID-19, there will be no on campus registration for transfer students. Transfer students should complete the Online Transfer Orientation. Afterwards, an advisor will contact them about registration.
