New Student Orientation

  • Fall 2018 New Graduate Student Orientation is scheduled for Wednesday, August 15 in the Arkansas Union. Check-in begins at 8 a.m.
  • Parking on campus can be difficult, especially without a parking permit. If you will be driving to campus and do not have a parking permit, you will likely want to park in the parking deck next to the Union. It is metered parking, so you’ll want to be prepared for that. You can find more information on the Parking and Transit website.
  • We encourage all our new students to bring a notepad, tablet or some other device for taking notes during the sessions offered at orientation. Also, many of the rooms in the Union are often quite chilly, so you may want to bring a light jacket if you get cold easily.

Graduate students at the University of Arkansas are leading change, and we are excited you have chosen to be a part of it. To help you successfully transition into graduate education on our campus, we have put together a one-day orientation for first year graduate degree-seeking students. We've included some information about new graduate student orientation below. Please, contact us if you have questions. Thank you for making the University of Arkansas a place to call home.
