FASET (New Student Orientation)

Familiarization and Adaptation to the Surroundings and Environs of Tech (FASET) is coordinated by The Office of New Student and Transition Programs.

FASET is Georgia Tech's orientation program for incoming undergraduate students and their families.

  • First-year students
  • New transfer students
  • New exchange students
  • Parents, family members, and guests of these students

FASET has been a Georgia Tech tradition since 1972. Orientation sessions are offered at the start of each semester for transfer and exchange students and during the summer for incoming first-year students.

During FASET, new students receive academic advisement, register for their first semester of courses, and complete other business items. In addition, Georgia Tech faculty, staff, and administrators discuss important campus services, student organizations, the undergraduate curriculum, and academic programs. Most importantly, students, parents, and guests have the opportunity to meet and interact with current Georgia Tech students and to get to know other new students, parents, and guests.
