Register for Griffon Orientation

We’re excited you’re planning to attend Missouri Western State University! Griffon Orientation (GO) is designed to help you complete all of the necessary steps to enroll and be ready to step foot on campus at the beginning of the semester. In the orientation process you will:

  • Complete required paperwork
  • Learn how to understand your financial aid package and pay your student bill
  • Talk with an academic advisor and enroll in classes
  • Connect with fellow classmates and current student mentors
  • Learn about all of the resources Missouri Western has to offer you

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have redesigned our program into a two-part orientation experience. Each student will be required to complete an online orientation module prior to their online GO session.  This move also requires us to set registration deadlines for all of our sessions to ensure that online content can be designed to meet the unique needs of each of our students ahead of time. Please pay close attention to the registration deadlines in the table provided.

If you have concerns regarding internet access, technology, or other unique challenges related to the completion of our online Griffon Orientation program, please contact Melissa Stallbaumer at to discuss an alternate plan.

Now you’ve signed up for GO, what’s next? Take a look at our New Student Checklist to complete important steps before your online module and Griffon Orientation.
