Important dates and deadlines

The entire Gettysburg College community is looking forward to welcoming you to campus in August. In order to prepare for your arrival, the Center for Student Success will send detailed information about orientation and pre-registration to all incoming students in May. Much of this information will be sent via email to the email account that you used on your application to Gettysburg College, so be sure to check it frequently!

In May, you will also receive login credentials for the The First-Year Dashboard—an online portal where you will provide information to the College as we prepare for your arrival. This dashboard will be used to collect and store your personal student information, academic interests, and more.
