Orientation programs are offered each August for graduate students entering UMBC in the fall semester.

The Office of International Education Services also sponsors a separate orientation for new international students.
Fall orientation will be held Thursday, August 15, 2013.
For those who were not able to attend orientation in person on August 15th, please check back here for an online version which will be posted after August 15.
