The New Graduate Student Orientation is held in a completely online format through Canvas (the University's host for all online classes). New students will have easy access to important information regarding their newest adventure in education, including easy references for progressing to their degree and campus resources. All new graduate students will receive an enrollment notification shortly before classes begin for this fully online module. Be sure to keep an eye on your new Southern Miss email account for additional information regarding this required orientation. In addition to the Graduate School online orientation, most programs have separate orientations. Please check with your academic unit or program for additional information.
