Graduate Students

Fall 2021 Graduate Orientation

Graduate orientation will be presented in an engaging online learning environment, including pre-recorded content from SAIC-wide resources such as the Flaxman Library & Special Collections, the Disability and Learning Resource Center, the Career and Professional Experience office (CAPX), and others, as well as a welcome message from our Dean of Graduate Studies. This content will be coupled with department-specific orientation activities, many of which will be conducted live. Although the dates are still being decided, we anticipate that content will be available by mid-August. We will also host an in-person welcome party- stay tuned for more information to come!

Guide for Incoming Graduate Students

Incoming graduate students should watch their home mailboxes for a brochure containing important information about the orientation process.
