Only your Georgia State grades are used to determine academic standing. You must earn a 2.0 Georgia State GPA each semester to remain in good standing and a cumulative 2.0 GPA to graduate. Some programs have GPA entrance requirements or GPA minimums to qualify to take specific courses. You can view your GPA in PAWS.

New students admitted for fall and spring semesters should attend New Student Orientation. Register here. New transfer students must complete an online pre-orientation that can be accessed from the Transfer Advisement page in addition to registering for New Student Orientation. During orientation, students meet with academic advisors to plan their schedules and register for classes, socialize with current and new students and learn their way around campus. Orientation for international students is provided by International Student and Scholar Services.
Log on to your PAWS account to view your transfer credits. Look under the “Student Records” menu and select “View Transfer Credit.” You will see what transfer credit has been reviewed and articulated to Georgia State credit. If you have questions about your transfer credit, consult with your appropriate Academic Advisement office. AP and/or IB credit should also show up in this section. You may want to take a look at the transfer equivalency charts for your school.
