Graduate Student Orientation

Bowling Green State University's Graduate Student Orientation program is designed to acclimate new graduate students to campus resources in order to foster community engagement and ensure student success. Graduate Student Orientation provides initial professional development for students to ensure compliance with institutional policies as well as a successful start to their academic career. We will offer the orientation experience both virtually and through on-campus experiences.  All new graduate students are encouraged to participate.

Virtual Graduate Student Orientation

As part of your virtual orientation, you'll be assigned a series of online modules to review and complete (you'll receive an email when it's time to login). The goal is to familiarize you with BGSU, outline policies important to your life and work as a graduate student, and explain who you can turn to for support while you are a student here. Additional modules will be assigned to students with graduate assistantships once employment paperwork is completed. Available in April for Summer, in August for Fall and in December for Spring.
