New Graduate Student Orientation
Welcome Graduate Students!
The Office of Graduate Studies provides a virtual orientation experience conducted through a Canvas course. We strongly recommend that you complete the course before academic classes begin as it contains important information on academic matters, important policies, library basics, and student success resources.
We are also offering optional online "New Student Q&A Sessions" if you have any additional questions that were not answered in the course content.
