Getting Started as a Student:
An online guide is available for new students to help them get started. The guide includes information about the steps it takes to become a student (PID set up, health history documentation, registration and payment, Hokie Passport, etc) and links to a variety of campus events and services, financial resources, campus life, and more. Visit the online guide>> .
The Graduate School hosts a new student orientation in the GLC auditorium on Friday, August 21, 9:00-11:00am. Morning refreshments will be served 8:30-9:00 in the lobby. Attendance of this session is not mandatory, but is encouraged, especially for students who do not have an orientation program within their department. We request that students who plan to attend this session register online (registration will open in mid-July).
We also provide a variety of information sessions and activities to help new students get started in their graduate career, including an information fair in the GLC between August 17-21. The fair features more than 50 campus and community organizations and services.
