Please note that recipients of multi-year fellowships (Graduate Center Fellows, CUNY Science Scholars, Science Fellows, Provost's Enhancement Fellows, Neuroscience Fellows, and Mathematics Fellows) and all new one-year Graduate Assistant B or Graduate Assistant D fellowship recipients must attend a Graduate Assistant Orientation during One Stop.

The graduate assistant orientations are scheduled at 9:30 am and 2 pm each day. You must register in advance for a session and bring your completed new hire packet and supporting documents to the session. International Students are advised to attend one of the two sessions on Tuesday, August 20th.
