Where do I Begin?

Students who meet the admission requirements can apply to be directly admitted into an online degree program. These students will start by taking the online orientation course, GS 111. This is a one-credit course offered every block that prepares students to succeed online and charts a course to graduation. Pathway students who complete Academic Start do not need to take GS 111.
