New Student Orientation - Graduate Students

Updated 6/26/2020

Congratulations on your decision to enroll in Parker University's Graduate program! We believe you have made the right decision, and we hope you are excited about the wonderful learning experiences and challenge ahead of you.
 
Things to know about your New Student Orientation:
  1. Complete the Graduate Orientation Packet. The packet is required before registration in Trimester One courses and should be completed by August 10, 2020 (MyParker login and password are required). Fall 2020 Orientation will now be entirely online due to the current regulations in Dallas County as a result of Coronavirus/COVID-19.
  2. Successful completion of New Student Orientation requires the completion of all content quizzes with a score of 75 or greater and the completion of the New Student Orientation survey (available via email after your Fall courses have begun). 
    1. This orientation will take several hours to complete, but can be done in multiple sittings. 
    2. EverFi is also required as part of New Student Orientation. You will receive information about EverFi in your parker.edu email- EverFi will be available after August 17th, 2020.
  3. We anticipate New Student Orientation will open to all REGISTERED new students by 8/10/2020 at 9AM.
  4. Most programs will have a Welcome and Q&A session on August 28th. This will be a 1 hour session with current students and your Program Director or the Dean of your college. Times will be announced at a future date and will be based on your program. These will be recorded for reference and added to your online course after they have been completed.

We are excited about your decision to attend Parker University. Should you have any questions about the orientation process or need further assistance, please contact Sierra Jones, Coordinator of Student Activities and Traditions, at Sierra.Jones@parker.edu.
