Graduate Orientation

Dear Graduate Student: 

Congratulations on your acceptance into a Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University) graduate program! The University's three colleges, Graduate Admissions and the Office of Student Engagement are collaborating to offer new graduate students a brief orientation to their respective programs, the University community, and the Philadelphia area.

This orientation is offered in conjunction with program-specific or International Student orientation you might be attending. In addition to meeting current graduate students, you will meet the deans and representatives of your respective schools. We will provide information on student IDs, financial aid opportunities and various other topics.

The date for the Graduate Student Orientation will be TBA. You will have the choice of several information sessions designed specifically for your needs as a new graduate student. The program will conclude with an information resources fair and reception, along with an opportunity to get your photo ID taken. We will offer extended bookstore hours during this program for your convenience.

We look forward to seeing you at the orientation and working with you during your time at Jefferson.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via email or call me at (215) 951-2634.

We sincerely hope you will join us.

Warmest Regards,

Heather Weaver
