Graduate Student Orientation

You are invited to our Welcome to Graduate School orientation program. Although this orientation program is not mandatory, our compilation of videos and important links will inform you of university-wide policies and resources beyond those of individual departments and colleges. Importantly, this program will help to establish you as an integral part of our SJSU community and allow you to absorb essential information easily and conveniently. This Welcome to Graduate School program will include modules on the following topics:

  • Academics
  • Wellness
  • Campus Life
  • Your Support Team
  • Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity (RSCA)
  • Tuition and Funding Information

All registered students will receive an invitation to join the Welcome to Graduate School - Fall 2023 Canvas course invitation during the week of August 7, 2023, as well as our Graduate Student Handbook which is a companion to your orientation and will be useful throughout your graduate career.  If you have not registered for classes by August 7, 2023, we will send weekly invitations to the Canvas course and provide the Graduate Student Handbook to all students who register thereafter.

Please monitor your MySJSU account and your preferred email, as information and invitations are released about graduate student orientation through those accounts.
