Welcome New Argos to the University of Great Falls!

We’re very excited to welcome you to campus this fall! The New Student Orientation is designed to provide ALL NEW STUDENTS with essential information related to academic requirements and campus resources at UGF. New student orientation is a long-standing and vital program that serves as a critical initiation for new students and represents an important vehicle for disseminating information, is a catalyst for building community, and serves to both communicate and define campus culture. In addition, orientation activities provide you the opportunity to make valuable connections with current, faculty, staff and students.


New Student Orientation
UGF would like to invite all new and transfer students —and their parents—to join us for the New Student Orientation.
