    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.

    The Counseling program orientation session will be held in Loyola Hall from 6:05-7:35 pm on Monday, September 21 following the fall graduate student welcome.
