The University’s Graduate School hosts the Summer Step event, and Welcome Week events. CEOAS hosts a college-specific Incoming Graduate Student Orientation. You will receive multiple emails regarding these events, and they are on separate timelines. The CEOAS Orientation is required. Most incoming students will be participating in a CEOAS field course and will not be able to attend these Graduate School events. Incoming Geology students not participating in any field course would be encouraged to participate in the Graduate School’s Welcome Week. Please see the links below.
“No matter what term you are admitted, Grad Welcome Week and orientation is available to all new students. If you don't want to wait, or live remotely, watch our recorded sessions.”

Please let us know when you are arriving in Corvallis, including if you are starting in summer for fieldwork or a cruise. It is recommended that you arrive in Corvallis by late August or early September in order to have time to get settled before it is time to begin student-related tasks. There are some housekeeping activities that you can do before classes begin, and getting these out of the way will make for a less stressful startup.
The Appointment Letter, please read, sign, and KEEP a copy of this document.
The New Hire Packet, note the requirement for remote verification for the I-9. This is actually easier than in the past, but it has to be an in-person verification.
Graduate Student office/desk space questions should go to Robert Allan. While efforts to have space for all grads settled are continuing, if you have an immediate need for in-person space within the College’s buildings (most commonly Burt, Wilkinson, Weniger, Strand), please contact Robert via email@example.com
These start in mid September, before term classes start. They overlap the Graduate School’s Welcome Week activities.
CEOAS offers three unique field courses for incoming graduate students. If you are unsure of which course to take, please consult your graduate advisor.
