When it comes to making a smooth transition to becoming a student at Georgia Tech, there are events, programs, and resources you'll want to take advantage of.
Fall 2021 Graduate Institute Orientation (GradIO)
In addition to the orientation that your individual program might hold (which you should attend), Graduate Studies hosts several orientation sessions prior to the start of classes to introduce you to campuswide resources and policies. New students have two options to attend orientation:
- Attend one of several live, virtual or in-person orientation sessions. These sessions will be held in the three weeks preceding the first day of classes. Registration will open here on July 1.
- Access an asynchronous virtual orientation via Canvas, Tech's learning management system. Admitted students will be given access to this site in late summer. Once available, log into Canvas and look for a course titled “Graduate Institute Orientation (GradIO).” If you do not see this course available, you can self-enroll. Check back here in late summer for updates.
Welcome to Tech Videos
We've also created a series of Welcome to Tech videos to help you familiarize yourself with our office and all that Tech has to offer.
