New Graduate Student Orientation

The College of Business is committed to ensuring the success of each incoming student. Each entering student is required to attend a comprehensive New Student Orientation. The orientation provides the student an opportunity to meet other new entering students and learn of important events essential to first semester success. At this 3-hour required event, we introduce the student to electronic databases and search engines in the library, determine course waivers, construct each student's initial degree plan, outline graduate school policy, and introduce the student to our MyMav system. The orientation concludes with one-on-one advising, providing students with a helpful understanding of degree requirements and first semester events.
