Next Steps for Accepted Students
Note: It will take 48-72 hours from the time of acceptance before you can access student systems to complete these next steps. This is the full list of next steps for admitted freshmen. If you are not a freshman, all of these steps may not apply to your student type. Next steps for newly admitted dual enrollment students can be found here.
- Find and Activate Your CampusID. Your campusID will be your primary identification as a Georgia State Panther. First look up your campusID and then make sure you activate it as soon as possible by visiting campusid.gsu.edu. The campusID is different from your nine-digit Panther number.
- *New* Get DUO. Once you’ve activated your Campus ID and Username, head over to the Duo Activation App to set up your mobile device or phone number for multifactor authentication. DUO helps make sure that it’s really you accessing your emails. This must be completed BEFORE you set up your PantherMail student email account. Questions? Visit technology.gsu.edu/duo.
- Set Up Your Panthermail. Your student email account will be used for all official communications with the university. Check this account frequently.
- Fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Don’t waste any time filling out the FAFSA. Use the school code 001574 when you submit your information. The sooner you fill this out, the sooner your financial aid package can be determined and distributed.
- Verify Lawful Presence. You must provide verification of lawful presence in the United States to receive in-state tuition.
- Submit Immunizations. Go to health.gsu.edu/perimeter-campuses/immunizations/ to learn how to submit your immunization records to our Student Health Center. Avoid registration delays by submitting your records as soon as possible.
