Three Things to Try This Week

Set SMART Goalsgetting specific about our plans is the first step to having a successful semester. What is most important to accomplish this fall? How will we achieve those goals? Taking the time to plan now can ensure that we reach (most of) our goals by the end of term. Here is some advice about making goals during graduate school.

More Resources

  • New to campus? Changed your local address recently? Be sure to update your records in the MSU Student Information System, with MSU HR, and/or with the State of Michigan as applicable.
  • Looking for RCR training? New students should receive email from Sandy Christlieb the last week of September with information on how to sign up for the College’s online “course” to complete their first-year training requirements. Returning students are encouraged to leverage the trainings offered by the MSU Graduate School.
  • Remember that the deadline to drop a class this semester and receive a refund of the tuition is September 23 at 8pm. You can find a list of important dates for the 2022–23 academic year here:
