New Graduate Student Orientation

Fall 2021 Orientation

Graduate Studies invites you to the in-person Graduate Student Orientation on Tuesday, August 17, 2021 at 5pm in Ballroom A in the Student Center at Sonoma State. Whether you are a first-time SSU student or you attended SSU previously, this orientation will introduce you to important student services available at SSU that will help you on their pathway to degree completion. Just to note, this orientation is intended to supplement any program-specific orientation and will not focus on any program-specific information. This orientation does not replace any other departmental orientations. 

After the orientation program is complete there will be light snacks and mingling so you can meet other graduate students and the Office of Graduate Studies team. 

Please RSVP using the invitation sent to your SSU email address before Friday, August 12, 2021.
