Depending on your program or student status, you most likely need to attend one or more Orientation sessions. Here’s what to know.
Graduate student Orientation
Whether you’re new or returning to KU, we encourage you to attend Orientation sessions. In addition to specific Orientation sessions (see below), new Lawrence-campus students admitted for the fall are also invited to attend the university-wide Hawk Week, August 20-29. Over one week in August, you’ll network with other students and faculty, explore the KU and Lawrence communities, and connect with offices that support graduate students.
In addition to in-person events and activities, all graduate students have access to online Orientation resources through Blackboard, your virtual student dashboard. Your Blackboard Orientation course is available to you anytime, and provides valuable resources common to all graduate students, regardless of their program or field (online MBA and online Education programs have a separate online orientation course).
