Orientation Activities

We use the phrase "Orientation Over Time" to describe our approach to welcoming new students to our community. We see orientation as a series of activities and resources designed to prepare you for the beginning of your first term at Wagner and to help you get the best possible start to your graduate school journey.

Orientation Over Time

The Student Services team presents mandatory sessions just prior to the start of the term. This session orients you to important policies, procedures, and resources at NYU Wagner and the University.
