New Graduate Student Orientation

The Graduate School's "Orientation for New Students" is designed to introduce you to the University, the graduate community and the broad range of resources and services available to support your success.  In addition to learning about the policies that govern your studies at UNC Charlotte, you will hear from experienced graduate students on a variety of subjects, such as living in Charlotte, being a non-traditional student or the importance of writing in graduate school.
