New Graduate Student Orientation

Welcome to Florida Atlantic University (FAU). FAU is at the forefront of graduate education and fosters a vibrant culture that encourages ingenuity and independence. The Graduate College is central to the academic mission of the university and our graduate students have the opportunity to work with world-renowned faculty researchers.  At FAU, there’s no limit to what you can achieve, and we are here to support your success.

Note: Please be aware that some academic programs also offer orientation sessions for new graduate students and are NOT intended to replace the Graduate Student Orientation. These additional sessions provide program-specific information while the Graduate Student Orientation provides a general overview of FAU graduate education.
