New Student Orientation

Welcome to the Graduate School of Education and Human Development (GSEHD)! We hope that you’ll be able to take advantage of these ways to connect with the GW, GSEHD, and larger DC community. We encourage you to review the New Student Guide as you prepare for your first semester.

Fall 2021 New Student Orientation

The Office of Student Life will enroll all new students in an asynchronous Blackboard orientation starting on Monday, August 2, 2021. Students who create their NetID after this date will be added to the Blackboard site the day after they create their NetID. Please note that this process is not automatic and it could take up to two days for you to see the GSEHD New Student Orientation site in Blackboard. This series of modules will walk you through key steps to take before you begin your program as well as resources and departments that will be available to support you during your academic career at GSEHD. In addition to the asynchronous orientation, the Office of Student Life hopes you will join us for live webinars and on campus events where you can meet staff and have your questions answered. We are thrilled to have you join the Graduate School of Education and Human Development and look forward to supporting you as you work towards your academic and professional goals.
