Please join us for New Graduate Student Orientation!
Choose from a number of concurrent sessions:
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. (Recommended for all students)
Account Navigation – Unsure how to navigate myUMBC or 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. (Recommended for students new to UMBC)
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. (Recommended for students new to UMBC)
And make sure to attend The Main Event: How to Succeed in Graduate School – where we will cover substantive topics that are essential for every new graduate student. Afterwards join us for Dinner 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 Graduate Life at UMBC session.
