Graduate Orientation and Welcome Week Information

In addition to Dornsife’s Weekly Orientation Schedule, we would like to share information on the Graduate student orientation schedule and the Drexel’s Welcome Week Schedule to get you ready for this upcoming year.

Events in these schedules will include: 

  1. Optional, but highly encouraged high-level University online graduate student orientation and onboarding resource in Blackboard Learn, including information about the REQUIRED Title IX training* for graduate students. Please let the graduate college ( know if you wish to have access to the orientation in Learn.
  2. Series of optional live synchronous virtual welcome and resource fair sessions on Monday, September 14 & Wednesday, September 16 via Brazen technology
  3. Opened to all students, Welcome Week Events has a list of events that include open houses for resource offices, club activities and game events, and other helpful resource events

*Title IX Training: Information on the required Title IX training for all new/incoming and current/returning graduate students will be sent out in Blackboard Learn. This training is mandated by the Graduate College and Office of Equality and Diversity (OED) annually. We will also continue to enroll students through fall add/drop. Students must complete the training by October 31.


For live synchronous events, you can register using links on the Graduate student orientation website. Registration must be through Brazen.

You can access the graduate orientation by logging into Drexel Connect and clicking on “Drexel Learn.” Click on the “Organizations” tab in the left-hand menu and locate “Graduate College Graduate Student Orientation 2020-2021” under the “Administrative Term.” Please note that it is an “Organization,” not a “Course.”

If you do not see the orientation in your Blackboard Learn account under “Organizations,” please first make sure you have the “Administrative Term” visible. Then, check to make sure you have picked up your Drexel email account. If you have just picked up your account, please contact the Graduate College at to be added. If you can see but have trouble accessing the orientation or modules, please contact Drexel’s Instructional Technology Group at, or visit the Technical Support page.


These virtual Welcome Week programs (September 14-18) can be accessed by logging into your DrexelOne portal or DrexelOne app.
