New Graduate Student Orientation

 

Students listening to orientation speakers in Rosser Hall lecture hall

Welcome to your graduate and post-baccalaureate studies at Cal State LA!

The Office of Graduate Studies and Graduate Resource Center are pleased to welcome you to our community of scholars and professionals. Cal State LA is a state comprehensive university with an urban mission of engagement, service, and the public good, and we aim to support you in your journey to advance this mission. Each semester, we offer a New Graduate Student Orientation Session to guide you in the right direction as you embark on your graduate studies.

By attending our orientation, you will:

  • Become acquainted with the resources and funding opportunities provided by the Office of Graduate Studies and Graduate Resource Center
  • Meet representatives from some of the offices and resource centers in the Division of Student Life (e.g., The Dreamer’s Resource Center, Student Health Center, etc.)
  • Learn about strategies for planning and completing your degree in a timely manner
  • Meet and network with other graduate students in your college who are beginning their programs at Cal State LA this fall

This orientation is not mandatory, but will prove to be incredibly helpful. Your department or college may also offer an orientation session, or as an international student you may be required attend an orientation hosted by the International Office; our session is not intended to replace these orientations, but will instead complement them.
