During the week of Aug. 17, Graduate Student Affairs will host a series of virtual orientation events for all incoming graduate students from the Brandeis International Business School, Graduate School for Arts and Sciences, and Heller School for Social Policy and Management.

This orientation will focus on Brandeis-wide resources available to graduate students, educational trainings and the multiple ways students can engage with each other.

In addition to the Graduate Student Affairs sessions, each of the graduate schools will host an orientation program for their own students as well.

Once registered with a Brandeis email address, all new students will be automatically enrolled via LATTE, the university's learning management system, into the Graduate Student Affairs orientation program as well as orientation courses associated with their specific graduate school. Please be sure to check your Brandeis email for regular updates regarding orientation.
