Welcome to Grand Valley State University's New Graduate Student Virtual Orientation.

For those who are unable to attend the general orientation session in person, this website has been designed to help you get started by providing an introduction to the services and resources for GVSU graduate students. It also serves as a ready reference for future use for those seeking information about GVSU at any time during their academic careers.
