Graduate Student Orientation

All new international graduate students must complete the College of Graduate Studies online Graduate Student Orientation (GSO).  Information about completing the online orientation is included in your admission acceptance letter.  In addition, an on-campus orientation program is hosted by the Office of International Affairs for all new international undergraduate and graduate students. Both of these orientations are in addition to any orientation programs that are required by individual graduate academic departments. International Graduate Teaching Assistants are also required to attend a training specific to their teaching assistant responsibilities.  This program is facilitated by the English Language Institute. Dates for all orientations are communicated to each student after admission.
