Graduate School Orientation
The Graduate School hosts Grad Welcome Week for all students a week before school starts in fall term. Students starting in other terms are invited to participate, and you can attend many of the sessions online. Grad Welcome Week includes the Graduate School orientation, a virtual resource fair, library day and GTA training. Your program might also have orientation events around this time. Check our video page for recordings from orientation.
As a graduate student, you are required to take the Voices for Change: Consent and Creating Inclusive Communities trainings. You will receive an email invitation with links to the trainings. Visit the SHS required online programs webpage for more information.
Domestic students are not required to have health insurance to attend OSU-Cascades. However, our university encourages students to have health insurance so that students can live their healthiest lives. Oregon State offers a health insurance policy through PacificSource for students and their family members.
If you’ve secured an assistantship and/or you are an international student, you will need to contact human resources to discuss which health insurance option is best for you. All graduate assistants are required to have some form of health insurance, and international students are required to have OSU insurance. Learn more about insurance:
