Orientation & Welcome Events

Graduate students at UCCS are invited to attend a Welcome Reception for all new students. This event typically occurs the week before the fall and spring semesters begin. This is not a required event for new students, but a great opportunity for them to meet others in their program as well as other disciplines. If you are starting a program in the summer we welcome you to the August or January Welcome Reception!

Before you arrive: New students are invited to review the online orientation course in Canvas.
