The First-Year Dashboard

Getting Started

The Dashboard is a secure system Gettysburg uses to gather information about our incoming students so we can be ready for you when you arrive. You will be asked to provide information about your academic interests, any credits you are bringing with you from previous study, insurance, your family, etc. In addition to providing information, you will also be asked to take the appropriate placement test(s) and complete information regarding financial authorizations and responsibilities. 

Access the Dashboard

Students starting at Gettysburg in August 2024 will complete the Dashboard in the early summer months. 

Parts of the Dashboard can be time consuming. We encourage you to start early and allow time over multiple days to complete all sections thoroughly. 

For some students, it may be helpful to have your parents/guardians available to help with sections regarding health insurance and emergency contacts.
