A two-day overnight experience, Griffin GearUp includes meeting with an academic advisor,
registering for classes, understanding the financial aspect of your
education at Westminster, exploring leadership development, and getting
to know your peers.
The dates for the GearUps are: April 20, April 27,
June 1, June 8, June 22, and June 29.
Visit the Griffin GearUp page to register for a Griffin GearUp.
Students who cannot attend a Griffin GearUp will still have the
opportunity to meet with a faculty advisor and get registered. These
one-on-one appointments will be in June and July. To sign up for one,
complete this form.
