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.

Spring 2021 New Student Orientation Events

The Office of Student Life will enroll all new students in an asynchronous Blackboard orientation starting on Wednesday, December 23, 2020. Students that 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.

Due to an annual update, Blackboard will not be available December 23, 2020 at 6pm EST thru December 26, 2020 at 6 pm.

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 where you can meet staff and have your questions answered. The schedule of these sessions will be posted in late December and you will receive an invitation to register. 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.
