Graduate Students are invited to attend the annual Graduate Student Orientation, which includes SLU's Welcome Information Fair. Representatives from offices across campus will be available to answer your questions. Some examples are Student Health, Financial Aid, and Career Services just to name a few.

The Orientation is for New Graduate students. It gives you all an opportunity to come and learn about resources available to you and to help get you familiar with Saint Louis University.

The Graduate Student Orientation is not required but it is strongly recommended. For a new Graduate Student we are able to explain a lot of possibilities you have and the difference between undergraduate and Graduate. This time also allows you all to speak to us and begin building that face to face connection.
