Graduate Student Orientation 

Congratulations on your decision to attend Stevens! It is our priority to ensure that you transition smoothly into life on campus. 


All new graduate students, both international and domestic, are encouraged to attend Graduate Student Orientation.  Students do not need to register or RSVP for Spring 2016 orientation.


At orientation, students will hear more about the Stevens community, submit health forms, get a Stevens ID, meet for academic advisement, register for classes, and learn how to be a successful graduate student. International students will also check in with International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) and attend a mandatory presentation about visa compliance.  Optional workshops will held on the days following orientation on topics such as American classroom culture, the US banking system, and finding housing in the local area.


Spring 2016 Graduate Orientation for domestic and international students is Tuesday, January 12, 2016.  Check-in for international students is 8:00-9:30 am on the 2nd floor of the Howe Center.  Domestic students should check-in between 10:30-11:00 am on the 2nd floor of the Howe Center.


Note for International and Out of State Students

International students should plan to arrive in the Hoboken, NJ area at least 2 days prior to orientation in order to adjust to the time difference and recover from jet lag. Stevens offers an airport pick up service as well as temporary housing option for new incoming graduate students who are traveling from outside of New Jersey or outside of the United States. Advanced registration is required for these services.
