New to Gavilan Student Orientation
The Orientation session provides the basic information and tools needed to get started at the college, including which classes are best to start with. New students will need to complete the Gavilan College application, obtain a Gavilan ID and PIN, complete the placement tool and access the Orientation online. The Orientation is available on the MyGav Student portal - a Gav ID/PIN and placement information is required. The orientation should be completed prior to registering for first semester classes. Students must complete the orientation prior to meeting with a counselor if registration assistance is required.
Students who complete the Orientation have an easier introduction to college, move toward their goal with more confidence and in a reasonable amount of time. Completion of the Orientation and an education plan qualifies students for priority registration.
** GECA and/or concurrently enrolled high school students do not complete a Orientation session at this time.
