Special orientation for new Gavilan College students and their parents

Download Flyer

WHO: Students who are new to Gavilan College, and their parents

WHAT: Are invited to attend a one-day only Student-Parent Orientation Day. Students will be able to take their Placement/Assessment Tests and attend a New Student Orientation. Students will receive their test scores the same day, and receive initial advising on course selection. Parents are invited to attend a session on "What to Expect and How to Support Your Gavilan College Student." Lunch will be provided free of charge for all participants. Space is limited. Pre-registration for this event is required. (Students who are unable to attend should complete an online orientation and schedule their placement/assessment and counseling separately.)

WHEN and WHERE: Saturday, August 19 on the Gavilan College Main Campus: 5055 Santa Teresa Blvd., Gilroy, CA 95020

* Placement/Assessment sessions: choose either 8 a.m. or 11 a.m, both in LS 104
* Lunch: 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. in the Student Center
* New Student Orientation: 1 p.m. Student Center
* What to Expect and How to Support Your Gavilan College Student: 1 p.m. in SS 206

HOW: To attend call the Gavilan College Office of Admissions and Records at (408) 848-4735. Parents and students may register independently: both do not have to be present for either to participate.

WHY: This event is ideal for students who have never attended college before and want an opportunity to see the campus, meet counselors, and have their questions answered in a friendly and face-to-face format. It will also be convenient for students to accomplish three steps of the matriculation process in one day: assessment, orientation, and initial counseling. Parents will have the opportunity to ask questions, and find out what to expect as their sons and daughters make the transition from High School to college.
