New Graduate Student Orientation

Fall 2024 New Graduate Student Orientation will be held in-person at the McKimmon Center on August 16. Students with the last name of A-L will attend the morning session from 9:30 - 11:30 a.m. Students with the last name of M-Z will attend the afternoon session from 1:30 - 3:30 p.m. The information fair will be from 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. and is open to all incoming students.

All newly enrolled graduate students will receive an email with full details on June 19. The following students DO NOT attend in-person orientation and, therefore, will not get the June 19 email: MBA, MAC, distance, and certificate students.

A separate email will be sent in August with details of the asynchronous online portion of new student orientation. The asynchronous online portion is open to ALL graduate students and is not available until August 17.
