All new graduate students are required to attend the Academic Orientation Seminar for Graduate Students, which is coordinated by the Office of Graduate Education. Fall entrants will be invited to the orientation in August. Spring entrants will be invited to the orientation in January.

Many departments/schools offer additional orientation activities. Please contact your department directly regarding your expected arrival date. If you are enrolling for the summer term, you should plan to attend Graduate Education’s fall orientation seminar mentioned above, in addition to any department activities offered in the summer or just prior to the start of the fall semester.
