Accepted Students


Congratulations on becoming a member of the Brandeis community of scholars at the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. We have prepared a list of resources to help you make the transition to Brandeis:


We are excited for the opportunity to officially welcome you at GSAS Orientation, taking place on Monday, August 24th. Please plan to arrive at the Olin Sang Lobby between 9:15am – 9:55am for registration. Orientation activities will begin at 10:00am and conclude at 4:00pm.

During Orientation, you will learn about Brandeis through interactions with current students, faculty, and staff. Please dress comfortably, as you will need to do some light walking in between locations. An individual lunch, including a sandwich, chips, fruit salad, and a drink will be provided. Please come prepared with your questions to get the best possible experience on Orientation Day.
