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. To complete the course, login to Canvas using your assigned umich username and password. Once authenticated, you should be able to click this link and enroll in the course "Fall 2022 - Graduate Orientation."  Once you enroll, the Orientation course will be available to you in your Canvas course list to access in the future.

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. If you plan to attend a Q&A session, please register in advance by clicking on the corresponding link below. 

Q&A Sessions:
Wednesday, August 3, 12–1 p.m. EDT
