Contact Melissa Auten (autenmd@appstate.edu) with questions

  • This orientation will allow you to "meet" your campus support representatives and members of the Graduate School staff, as well as provide helpful information to help you get off to a successful start!
  • Your Academic Program Department may also have an orientation session for on-campus students.  Please check with your advisor or department contact for the time and location. If you are unsure of your advisor or department contact, please let us know and we will assist you (gradadmissions@appstate.edu).  
  • If the new student orientation offered by the School of Graduate Studies overlaps in time with your departmental orientation, you should attend your departmental orientation and any part of the Graduate School orientation that time allows.
