Graduate Student Welcome

We are looking forward to welcoming you into the Chatham community at the Virtual Graduate Student Welcome! We will be offering a virtual session where new graduate students will have an opportunity to learn about campus resources and meet faculty, staff, and other graduate students.

Save the Date: Wednesday, August 11 (Time TBD)

If you are unable to join us for the Graduate Student Welcome, a video recording will be posted to get up-to-date on key information for graduate students once the session has taken place. 


 

What You Need to Know

All incoming graduate students can register for Graduate Welcome here. (Link coming soon!)

Your student ID grants you access to your residence hall, meal plan, on-campus printing, and more! See the ID policies & procedures for a complete list of the ways you’ll use and benefit from your Chatham ID. 

Please note that you must submit online for your student IDs, as we are currently unable to accept walk-ins due to the need to follow social distancing protocols. You do not need your ID before classes start, and they will be available on campus when you arrive for orientation. 

Once you have reviewed all information, you can submit your request here. We will contact you if there is an issue with your submission, so please monitor your email. Please email if you have any questions. 

Information for both on- and off-campus graduate housing options and applying for housing, as well as additional rental resources in the area can be found here.

Review the Student Honor Code
As citizens of the campus community, students must accept certain obligations that accrue by virtue of such citizenship. Consequently, students must adhere to community standards in accordance with the University's mission and expectations. Read the Complete Honor Code here.

Graduate Student Assembly (GSA)
GSA functions as an advisory committee for graduate student programs and initiatives. Two or more representatives from each program will serve on the committee. Students are able to self-nominate or be nominated by Graduate Program Directors to these positions. 

Students meet monthly with the Associate Director of Residence Life & Student Engagement and Dean of Students to: 

  • Discuss the campus climate, graduate student programming, and other graduate student focused initiatives
  • Represent and advocate for the issues, concerns, and proposals of other graduate students
  • Meetings are held on both Shadyside and Eastside campuses

GSA Advisor Contact: Simmone Bell (s.bell@chatham.edu)

Graduates can self-nominate for GSA or contact their Graduate Program Director.

The Grad News Update (GNU) is a bi-weekly newsletter that comes out from the office of Student Engagement detailing upcoming events, job opportunities, and information that graduate students can take part in. All graduate students will receive this newsletter via email automatically during bi-weekly schedule.
