Graduate New Student Orientation

A message from the Dean of Graduate Studies:

Congratulations and welcome to Framingham State University!

We are thrilled that you will be joining the FSU family and FSU’s vibrant graduate and professional student community!

The Graduate Studies Office is here to ensure that you find a stimulating intellectual and social community of students and scholars from across all graduate programs. We are here to assist you as you work to complete your graduate degree.  The University provides many resources to support you through your studies, but they aren’t useful if you don’t know about them! The offices of Graduate Studies, Student Services and Graduate Admissions encourage you to visit all of the tables at tonight’s Orientation to gather important information about services available to you.  We ask that you read this information carefully and keep it for future reference.

If you have concerns or need more information, please call us at 508-626-4014, visit us on campus at Room 202 in Dwight Hall, or email us at

We look forward to seeing you at the Graduate Studies Office and wish you the very best in your academic endeavors.
