first day of classes.
Open yourself up to new experiences.

Please read the "5 Things to Know about Your Tuition Waiver" document in the Graduate Assistants module of this orientation.

Register and attend the ethics training (PET-RCR) before the start of your 3rd semester.


Your degree will have academic unit requirements and Graduate College requirements, called milestones.
