General Orientation

Hello Eagles!

Welcome to GAU!

As a newly admitted student, you will be required to attend The GAU General Orientation. The general orientation program is built to make your arrival easier, as well as your transition into university as smooth as possible. 

After registering for your courses, all new students – both freshmen and transfers – are expected to participate in GAU Orientation Week. There are a few key online events for all new students, including the New Student Welcoming Ceremony, Life in TRNC Induction and the Faculty Meetings. Beyond these, there are many more events available online that you can pick and choose from based on your own interests and needs. 

Attendance at GAU Orientation Week events is important, and to ensure that all students have the opportunity to participate, we will be offering this year's orientation fully online with virtual options.

Please note Attendance will be taken at several orientation week events, so be sure to subscribe and attend.

Once again welcome to Girne American University! We can’t wait to have you back in campus. In the meantime stay safe, stay home and Mask Up Eagles!
