Graduate Orientation Week


Graduate Research Orientation Week (GROW)

Graduate Research Orientation Week (GROW) encompasses a number of workshops, programs and events held at the beginning of each academic year to provide new incoming students with an opportunity to take care of important pre-enrollment tasks and to learn about UC Merced and the Merced community.

GROW is currently scheduled from 08/15 - 8/21/18. Sessions running from 8/15 - 8/17/18 are mandatory for all incoming students and the remaining sessions are dependent upon school and graduate group. As the date approaches, we will provide specific schedules and information. You must register for GROW no later than Friday, July 27, 2018 by 12pm (noon).
