Coming Soon

Each term the GSA welcomes graduate students by offering orientation programming where new and returning students can get the chance to meet members of their community and learn about the many services offered for their benefit and enjoyment.

For Fall 2022, we are offering both in-person and virtual programming!

Information Fair

New and returning graduate students are invited to attend the Graduate Student Orientation Information Fair to learn about the GSA and the variety of services and supports available for graduate students both on- and off-campus. 

In Fall 2022, this event took place on 1 September 2022. Thank you all for helping make this event a success!


New and returning graduate students are also invited to enroll in the Graduate Student Orientation eClass for more in-depth information about the GSA and other important University of Alberta services. 

Complete this virtual Orientation by 30 September 2022 for a chance to win an iPad!
