New Graduate Student Orientation Fall 2015

New graduate student orientation is on Tuesday, August 18 from 5:30pm until 6:30 pm, in Gyte 103.  This event is held the week before classes begin each Fall and Spring semester.   The orientation is to welcome new students to the Purdue Calumet campus and discus topics specifically geared toward Graduate students such as electronic plans of study and thesis information.

 The orientation should last 30- 40 minutes, and you will have the opportunity to ask questions at the orientation. If you have specific registration questions, or questions about your specific degree program, please contact your admitting program. If you have questions about this orientation, please call 219-989-2257 for information (Graduate Studies Office). You are encouraged, but not required to attend. No RSVP is required. 

The campus bookstore will be open to make arrangements for you to obtain your student ID on that evening (if you need one). The bookstore will be open from 5pm to 7:30pm, so that you may purchase your books before and after the orientation. Student IDs will also be available, if you have a photo ID and a copy of your schedule for your classes. NOTE:  If you were a PUC undergraduate, you do not need to replace your student ID since your undergraduate student ID is still valid. (If you are a graduate aide, you will need to make arrangements to have your ID created through the University Police.) 

For directions to the orientation, a campus map is available at
