Welcome to the graduate community at Texas State!

New Graduate Student Orientation is designed to set you up for success by providing you with helpful information and resources to enhance your academic experience at Texas State!

Every fall, we hold on-campus orientation to introduce all spring, summer, and incoming fall graduate students to key policies, services, on-campus events, and more! Even if you are admitted for the spring or summer terms, you are invited to attend.

During the program, we discuss a number of topics including transitioning to graduate studies, navigating your graduate degree, scholarships and other funding, professional development opportunities, research and travel support, library resources, career services, campus safety, student and emergency services, and Graduate College policies and procedures.

We encourage you to review our online orientation, read or download our Graduate Student Handbook, and watch our welcome video. If you have any questions, please contact us. We wish you the best as you embark on your graduate studies!
