CHHS Graduate Orientation

This orientation is uniquely created for graduate students in the College of Health and Human Sciences.  You will learn about academic expectations, campus and community resources. Whether you are attending a university in the U.S. for the first time or have attended FSU before, the graduate student experience is filled with challenges and rewards.  We are here to support you during your journey to becoming a successful professional in your field of study.

The college orientation will be offered virtually as a self-paced online Canvas course. We will invite you to the course after you have activated your FSU ID.  The course will open on 30 November 2020 and should be completed by 11 December 2020.   Please allow yourself time to complete all modules; total viewing time is a little over two (2) hours and this does not include the quizzes or assignments. We will also hold an optional zoom meeting the morning of Monday, 4 January 2021 from 11:00am to 12:00pm (noon) EST where you will have an opportunity to meet and ask questions of representatives of the offices that gave presentations.
