Welcome Home! 

Augusta University is home to a community of scholars, visionaries, and change-makers. The Office of New Student and Family Transitions strives to inspire and empower each and every new student to leave a mark on the world. Here in the Office of New Student & Family Transitions we work each and every day to ensure that our students and their families transition into our community is like no other

We strive for excellence in what we do, and how we do it. Through innovative and high-impact practices, we deliver just-in-time information that supports the whole student, and their family through their transition into our community. We approach orientation as an educational process and as a launching pad, with the introduction and discovery of the individual, relationships, and foundational routines that serve as the bedrock of their development, scholarship, and leadership. 

Mission and Vision

The mission of New Student & Family Transitions is to provide a seamless transition into the Augusta University community through a series of innovative high-impact programs focused on orientating, transitioning, and retaining new students and their families. 

By providing timely and accessible programming from the point of admission through matriculation, students and their families will be engaged with opportunities to connect with campus resources, learn the culture and customs of Jaguar Nation, and receive consistent communication that leads to a successful transition.
