About Graduate Orientation

Spring 2021

As a new graduate student, we want your transition to the UNT campus to be a positive experience. To help with this process, we have put together an online orientation to help acquaint you with the many campus resources and students services available to you as a new student.


Complete the "Graduate Online Orientation" course via Canvas, UNT's online learning platform. You can access Canvas at by logging in with your campus EUID and password.


Participate in your department's orientation. Most academic departments host a separate orientation session for their new students. Contact your graduate academic advisor to learn about your department's expectation.


Participate in the live Orientation Welcome for Graduate Students via Zoom on Saturday, January 9 at 9:00 a.m. CST. During this session, you will get to hear from campus administrators and student services that will aid in your success as a graduate student. The schedule can be found on "schedule" tab.
