Welcome and Orientation Activities for Graduate Students
Graduate School Orientation
The Graduate School hosts an orientation session for all new graduate students on the Manhattan campus in the week prior to the start of each fall and spring semester. All new graduate students, including those who recently completed an undergraduate degree program at K-State, are strongly encouraged to attend this session, which is typically held on Wednesday.
Additional Sessions and Activities
In addition to the orientation session for new graduate students, the Graduate School and other student support units coordinate other informational and welcome sessions and activities for new and continuing graduate students.
Advance registration is requested for many of the welcome and orientation sessions and activities. Detailed schedule information and access to online registration forms can be accessed by clicking on the appropriate semester below.
Students admitted to a graduate program in the summer term should attend Fall orientation.
