Graduate Program Directors
The Graduate School and other campus support units will host welcome and orientation activities for new graduate students admitted to graduate programs for the summer and fall 2018 terms during the week of August 13th. A schedule of sessions and activities is available on the Graduate School website, and an online registration form is now available. Earlier this week, incoming graduate students who have accepted their admission offer in CollegeNet were sent a direct email notifications about orientation. To ensure that all students receive this information, graduate programs are encouraged to promote graduate student orientation activities to their new and current graduate students.
