Please join us for New Graduate Student Orientation!
The following concurrent sessions are highly recommended:
Account Navigation – Unsure how to navigate myUMBC of Blackboard? Then this session is for you. Current graduate students will answer any myUMBC related questions and will cover topics such as e-billing, course enrollment, and transcripts.
Graduate Life at UMBC – Learn from representatives from PROMISE, Off-Campus Student Services, and the Graduate Student Association about the many activities and programs that UMBC offers to its graduate student population.
Campus Tour – Explore the UMBC campus during this guided tour. A current UMBC graduate student will accompany the tour to greet you and provide a graduate student perspective.
And make sure to attend The Main Event: How to Succeed in Graduate School – where we will cover the substantive topics that are essential for every new graduate student. Afterwards join us for Dinner on the Quad and time to mingle with current graduate students and department representatives!
Note: Concurrent sessions are optional, though highly recommended. They are designed to welcome and introduce new graduate students to UMBC. We also encourage almuni who are returning to UMBC as graduate students to attend the session Graduate Life at UMBC.
