Graduate Student Orientation will be held Tuesday, August 22 through Friday, August 25, 2017. Please mark your calendars!

Orientation will provide you with the information and resources you need to get your year off to a great start, and to aid you as you begin your graduate program. Sessions will cover a variety of topics, including wellness; professional development; information about Fordham's graduate community and culture; and financial aid. All incoming GSAS students are strongly encouraged to register in advance and MUST attend all sessions marked mandatory on Friday, August 25, 2017.
