The Graduate School Advance to a Higher Degree

Welcome to Graduate School!

Congratulations! As you begin your graduate education, the Graduate School would like to offer you some inspiration, practical tips, and resources for the journey.

To begin your self-guided orientation, we recommend that you begin by viewing Dean Linda Mason's welcome message. Next, you will want to watch her professional development videos. During the fall orientation, students who were watching online found Dean Mason so inspiring, they attended her afternoon presentations in person.

Before you leave the site, we also encourage you to explore the Resource Fair and read a few student Tips for Success. You will also want to review the schedule of upcoming Professional Development workshops, which are free of charge to all Purdue Graduate Students.
