New Graduate Student Orientation (NGSO)

Important Resources  |  Valuable Information  |  Diverse Perspectives

The Office of Graduate Student Professional Enhancement invites all incoming master's and PhD students to participate in our New Graduate Student Orientation. In August 2023, the New Graduate Student Orientation will be in the form of asynchronous modules available on Canvas. New graduate students are also invited to the in-person New Graduate Student Resource Fair (with lunch included) on Wednesday, August 9, from noon until 2:00 p.m. in the Gatton Student Center Ballrooms A&B.   

The orientation "course" on Canvas, the university's learning management system, will launch on Thursday, August 3rd, and new graduate students should begin receiving email invitations to join the course following the launch.

If you do not receive an invitation from Canvas, you can self-enroll in the orientation course via this link:
