Support for international graduate students transitioning

The self-paced, online Canvas course will address academic etiquette within the framework of the U.S. higher education system, explore cultural adjustment, discuss plagiarism, and cover useful resources to utilize throughout your graduate program. The live panel event, consisting of students and faculty, will focus on providing tips and resources that can help you be successful throughout your graduate program.
