Pre-Orientation Online Module

Access the Pre-Orientation Online Module

Incoming new students should complete the required Pre-Orientation Online Module (POOM) before arriving on campus and participating in Orientation. Students need their UserID and password to access the POOM.

Students should complete all sections of the POOM prior to attending Spring Orientation.  For new students starting at GW in the Spring, the POOM opens in November.

Some of the content included in the POOM covers:

  • Academic Advising and Class Registration
  • Academic and Student Support Services at GW
  • Living On-Campus and Getting Involved at GW
  • Learning About and Getting Around Washington, D.C.

Students received an email in October with information about the POOM and notifying them that the POOM is open.

Note: Sections 1 and 2 of the POOM help students prepare for class registration - do not wait to start this module!
