Global Student Orientation

Register for GSO

We are excited to meet you and welcome you to APU! Global Student Orientation (GSO) is designed to make your transition to APU and America a smooth one.

  • GSO is mandatory for all international undergraduate, graduate, artist certificate, and ALCI students on F-1 or J-1 visas.
  • GSO is highly recommended for third-culture kids (TCKs) who have spent the majority of their life away from the United States.
  • All new first-year and transfer undergraduates also need to register for and attend Welcome Weekend.

Feel free to contact us at if you have any questions, or if you have decided to not attend Azusa Pacific University.
