Program Orientation Events

Many, but not all, of our graduate programs also have an orientation event with program-specific information so contact your department for details.  International students attending on an F-1 student visa must check-in with the International Student Center before the start of classes.  A mandatory orientation for new international students is held prior to the start of the fall quarter in September.

The Graduate Student Welcome event is a general program with important information for all our graduate students.
