Welcome New Graduate Students


If you are new here to campus, welcome to Michigan State University! We have been so happy to see so many amazing people at orientations these past weeks, and we are here to do everything we can to help you! If you have any immediate concerns or questions, please contact us at

We know also that getting to campus means a lot of changes and a lot of new experiences, especially in your first year- new health insurance, a new job, and a new place to live. Even when you’re going into later years, it can still be a lot to handle. That’s why we’re here to help!
