New Student Orientation
Fall 2023 Orientation
Welcome to the Graduate School of Education and Human Development (GSEHD)! Orientation is an opportunity to connect with the GW, GSEHD, and larger DC communities. All students are required to complete the asynchronous virtual orientation in Blackboard. We also welcome you to join us for live virtual sessions and a Fall Welcome event on the Foggy Bottom campus.
We encourage you to review the New Student Guide as you prepare for your first semester. We look forward to supporting you as you work towards your academic and professional goals.
Required Virtual New Student Orientation
All new students are enrolled in an asynchronous New Student Orientation in Blackboard. This orientation is required. It is self-paced so you can complete the orientation on your own time. The deadline for completion is the first day of the semester.
To access the New Student Orientation, please use your GW credentials to log into Blackboard. The Orientation is listed under “Organizations.”
