Virtual Orientation for New Graduate Students
New Graduate Student Orientation
Graduate Student Orientation - Fall 2014
The next Graduate Student Orientation will be held on Wednesday, August 20, 2014.
This orientation is intended to supplement any academic program orientation that you may be expected to attend. The goal is to provide an opportunity for new graduate students to become acquainted with the available services and resources, meet new people, and take care of related business, including schedule adjustments or payments, obtaining a photo ID, purchasing textbooks, etc.
While all new graduate students are invited, those who will be taking classes at the Allendale or Grand Rapids locations, along with those who have not previously attended Grand Valley have found the general orientation to be very helpful.
Please note that invitations will be sent to all new graduate students in the Fall. Please contact us at 616.331.7220 if you have any questions.
