All newly enrolled graduate students received an email with full details on June 21. If you enrolled after June 21, expect an orientation email within the next few weeks. The following students DO NOT attend in-person orientation: MBA, MAC, distance and certificate students.

A separate email will go out closer to August 19 with details of the asynchronous online portion of new student orientation. The asynchronous online portion is open to ALL graduate students and will be available on August 20.
