New Graduate Student Information


See Spring 2020 New Graduate Student Orientation Information

Orientation is offered before the beginning of the fall and spring semesters (students who begin graduate studies in the summer should attend the fall orientation). Orientation includes opportunities to meet university administrators, speak with fellow students from a variety of academic disciplines, and has three required Life Skills Workshops. All new graduate students are expected to attend Orientation prior to beginning graduate classes. They are also expected to follow all policies and guidelines related to student conduct and to the successful completion of their degree program.


You should be enrolled no later than the first day of classes. Enrollment generally opens for the spring semester on the last Monday in October and in the first week of April for the summer and fall semesters. Please meet with your advisor to discuss your enrollment and then bring your completed and signed enrollment card to the Graduate School to be enrolled.
