Welcome and Orientation Activities for Graduate Students
Manhattan Campus Activities
The Graduate School hosts an orientation session for all new graduate students on the Manhattan campus on Wednesday 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. Several other informational and welcome sessions and activities for new and continuing graduate students are held in the week prior to the start of the fall and spring semesters.

Global Campus (distance) student Check-list and Orientation
Students completing a graduate program via distance through K-State’s Global Campus, who will not be residing in the Manhattan area and will not be utilizing on-campus resources, do not need to attend the on-campus welcome and orientation activities in Manhattan. These students should view the check-list and orientation videos for distance students.
Olathe Campus Orientation Resources
Students completing a graduate program at K-State's Olathe campus are encouraged to visit the K-State Olathe Student Resources site and explore the orientation materials. Other important information for current graduate students regarding degree requirements can be found on the Graduate School website in the Current Students section.
