New Graduate Student Orientation

Welcome to UNC — we are excited to welcome you as a new graduate student! To help acquaint you to UNC we offer a New Graduate Student Orientation (NGSO). NGSO provides an overview of what to expect at UNC as well as the opportunity to meet other graduate students and university staff.

You are not required to attend NGSO, but it is a great opportunity to interact with other graduate students, access information about resources available to you as a graduate student and learn more about UNC. You may also check out the Orientation Guide.

When you are on the Greeley campus, please feel free to stop by the Graduate School, located in Carter Hall, room 2007, to meet us in person! You may also stop by Bear Central, located in the Campus Commons, and enjoy a campus tour.


August 16, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
New Graduate Student Orientation will be in-person this fall. On Tuesday, Aug. 16, we invite new and current graduate students to join us from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. for a campus tour, a resource fair, lunch in Holmes Dining Hall and a student panel. This event is for students in programs on the Greeley campus and Extended Campus students who are available to attend in person. More details will be emailed to those who register for the orientation (you will need to log in).

Extended Campus will hold a virtual orientation meeting for new graduate students in August. The Extended Campus staff will reach out directly to communicate with new students.
