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 August, we hold 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.

For this year's orientation, we will be offering orientation online as a Canvas course with an accompanying virtual live event (via Zoom) on Wednesday, August 12, 2020. Stay tuned for more details!

We encourage you to review our student welcome, 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!
