New Student Orientation Webinars

Welcome to the School of Professional Development! Before beginning their graduate program, all new students are required to join us for an interactive orientation webinar with their program directors and coordinators. Note: If you are a   cohort student  who is taking all of your classes in an off-site location, then you do not need to sign up for this online orientation. Cohort students have different procedures to follow, so there will be a separate orientation delivered on-site.

Topics will include:

  • Program overview
  • Advisement
  • Academic expectations
  • Enrollment information
  • Your accounts
  • To-do list/reminders
  • Policies and procedures
  • Useful resources


How It Works 

The webinar will take place via Zoom. You will need access to an internet-connected computer with the ability to install plug-ins, if needed (it is usually not needed).
