As a new graduate student at Bowling Green State University (BGSU) and/or a first-time graduate assistant, you must enroll in a non-credit, transcripted course entitled GRAD 5000. GRAD 5000 prepares newly enrolled students for the academic and professional expectations associated with graduate education, including Graduate College policies and preparation for graduate pedagogy, research, scholarship, and creative work. This is an S/U graded course. The content of GRAD 5000 compliments the material presented during the Graduate College Programming during Graduate Student Orientation (GSO) Week.
Please work with your department to make sure that you are registered for the proper section of GRAD 5000 should you have any questions.
