Jaguar Nation Welcome

Welcome to Georgia Regents University! We're looking forward to meeting and helping you find your place here at GRU.

During our Jaguar Nation Welcome you will learn about resources that will assist you in preparing for your first semester at GRU, be academically advised, become enrolled in your first semester of classes and get acquainted with your new home away from home. During orientation you will attend a presentation by your college where any questions you may have about your academic area of study will be answered, learn what courses to take your first semester, and get to know your current students including your Orientation Leader .  You will also be introduced to POUNCE, your online resource for many of your important tasks as a student.  You will also have an opportunity to meeting individuals from many of our offices.

Each new student is required to attend an Jaguar Nation Welcome, orientation session! 

To register for Jaguar Nation Welcome, please register online.

We urge all students to register for a Jaguar Nation Welcome session as soon as possible.  Each student will be charged a $40.00 Orientation Fee – after attending your Jaguar Nation Welcome the amount will be added onto your POUNCE Account to pay at time of tuition and fees for your first semesters enrollment.
