To prepare for life as a Grad Rebel, new graduate students are required to log in, listen to and interact with the modules, and complete the assigned tasks. The information in the modules is important for new Grad Rebels to know to be successful in their graduate program. The course will be available for students to complete at their own pace, between Aug. 9 and Sept. 1, 2021. The on-campus events and activities on August 20th are encouraged but optional.
