New Graduate Student Checklists – Must-do Action Items

Graduate students in the OHSU-PSU School of Public Health are students at both OHSU and PSU, and take classes at both institutions. You will study with faculty from both universities, engage with students from a wide range of health-related disciplines and allied professions across OHSU and PSU, and enjoy access to the resources of both institutions. We are so excited that you will be joining us this fall!

Until then, there is a lot to do to prepare! Besides registering for class, you will need to review  essential information, and take care of administrative requirements and tech setup for both universities. As as student in the OHSU-PSU School of Public Health, you will have two student IDs, two student email addresses, and two university network accounts, in order to allow you ready access to courses and resources at both universities. It is very important that you establish your student account at each university prior to the beginning of the fall term.

That is where the checklist comes in — use yours to stay on track. There are slightly different checklists, depending on which academic program you are entering. Find the checklist for your program and read it carefully, and be sure to complete each action item by the date listed.
