Graduate School Base Camp

Graduate School Base Camp is a condensed version of key GradProSkills workshops which lay the foundations for a positive and productive grad school experience. During these six carefully selected one-hour workshops, participants will learn fundamental skills, gain an awareness of important university rules,  and be pointed to key resources.

To register for Base Camp 2017, log in to your Student Center and enroll in course "GPLL20". This course will be found in the Winter 2017 term for your professional development career. If you require assistance, view our registration instructional video or email the
