Graduate Student Orientation

Designed to introduce new graduate students to graduate education at Utah State University

Online Orientation Course (Required)

All incoming graduate students are required to take an online orientation course. This orientation provides an overview of graduate education at USU, a checklist for new students, grad school best practices, and campus resources. Students are encouraged to complete all the modules before the beginning of the semester, but all materials will remain accessible throughout their time at USU. Students should contact their graduate program coordinator (GPC) with any questions.
