Graduate Student Orientation

F14 Graduate Student Orientation 

 August 20, 2014


IMPORTANT NOTICE:  We are no longer accepting requests to attend this event.  Both sessions are full. Please check back to this website a week after the event for video clips of all presentations, PowerPoint presentations and other handouts provided to attending students.   Students attending SJSU on F-1 visas will be contacted by ISSS about a future make-up orientation session.

Welcome to San José State University!

Incoming graduate students who registered for either the AM or PM F14 Graduate Student Orientation program will soon be receiving their attendance ticket through MySJSU, as well as instructions for check-in.  

We are thrilled to have so many incoming graduates on campus at the same time!  In order to make the day as comfortable as possible, please read the links we have included to the right of this message for information about your schedule, parking, and other activities available for you to attend outside of your session. 

A few important things to note:

We are unable to accommodate any further schedule changes.

Due to the popularity of this event, we ask that you do not bring guests to the orientation.  To attend either the AM or PM sessions, registered students must have an attendance ticket and a name badge.  Your guests would therefore be excluded from attending that portion of the program.  They may, however, attend a campus tour while you are in session.

If you require special accommodations to attend this event, please contact Cheryl Cowan at so that those arrangements can be made.

We look forward to seeing all of you on August 20!
