Can't attend these events? Here are a few brief tips for making sure you get off to a great start:


  1. Each department has a graduate program adviser and a graduate coordinator or secretary.  We strongly urge you to identify these key people - they can be excellent resources.
  2. Obtain any writing materials from your department that describe requirements for satisfactory progress and degree completing.  Keep these items in a permanent file.
  3. Become familiar with the Graduate School's general requirements and policies for all graduate students.
  4. Take a guided tour of campus.  Tours are offered Monday through Saturday.  Call (541) 346-3201 or visit the Office of Admissions web site.
  5. Scan the headlines in your monthly issues of GradPost, our graduate student e-newsletter which will be sent to your UO email address on the first Tuesday of every month.
  6. If you are a new GE make sure to look at the GE Online Orientation.
