The MGIS program has orientation programs every fall and spring for incoming graduate students. They are normally scheduled a week or two prior to the start of classes. The fall orientation is a full-day program since the majority of students start at the beginning of the academic year; a scaled-down version is organized for those entering in the spring. The orientation content includes an introduction to faculty, students and administrators, an explanation of program requirements and procedures, a discussion of facilities and services, opportunities for financial assistance and awards, and, of course, advising support.
Graduate School Orientation Program
The Graduate School's Welcome & Orientation is open to all incoming graduate and professional students and is intended to complement orientations provided by programs and colleges. This program also includes a Resource Fair held in the McNamara Alumni Center.
International Student Orientation Program
All new international students should check in with International Student & Scholar Services in 190 Humphrey Center as soon as possible to sign up for the International Student Orientation Program (ISOP) and to receive additional support to get started at the University.
