Graduate Student Orientation

Fall 2018

Graduate orientation is hosted at the beginning of each term. The program provides students with an overview of the services and resources available to them at the University of New Haven, a demonstration of how to navigate the school's online systems, information on where to obtain your University of New Haven Campus Card ID and parking permit and, most importantly, the opportunity to meet other students new to the program.
