Welcome Graduate Students!

We are excited that you have chosen our institution to pursue your graduate course of study. This is a whole new chapter in your academic and professional life, and we are honored to be your partner on the journey.

While many new graduate students will be invited to a program-specific academic orientation, all new graduate students are also encouraged to attend the New Student Convocation and Graduate Student Orientation offered prior to the start of the fall term. New graduate students who begin their program in the winter or summer term are invited to attend our Graduate Student Orientation as convocation is held only in the fall.
