Orientation

Graduate Programs

Graduate students are required to attend orientation. Orientation brings together faculty and students for an initial discussion of program requirements and tools for success. It helps prepare you for the rigorous standards ahead and exposes you to an array of support services available from your new campus community.

Note: an orientation fee will be included on your student account.
