Meet other master's and doctoral students, get acclimated to our campus, and get quick answers to your questions before the first day of class at our graduate student-specific orientation.
Whether you're returning to college after a long absence or coming right out of your undergraduate career, our orientation for master's and doctoral students is designed to ensure you're prepared on day one of your program.
Master's and doctoral students entering in the fall may register for a half-day orientation session in May, June or July. If you are starting D'Youville at any time other than September, contact Graduate Admissions for an orientation appointment. If you're a graduate physical therapy or occupational therapy major, you are required to attend our June orientation.
We understand that working professionals have busy schedules. So, we target orientations to address your specific needs. Group sessions begin promptly at the designated time, include lunch, and end with registration for classes.
