Orientation FAQ

How do I sign up?
If I am not attending new student orientation, do I still need to go to TA Training or Lab Safety Training?

TA Training is required for those students who will be a Teaching Assistant in a Lehigh department (and have not had the training).

Lab Safety Training is required for those that will work in a physical Lehigh lab.

Is it mandatory?

Our grad general orientation is not mandatory.  However, attending general grad orientation will be helpful in your journey to becoming a Lehigh graduate student.   You'll meet other new students and learn about life at Lehigh and in Bethlehem.

However, if you have been offered a position as a teacher's assistant, then TA training is NOT optional and must be completed. 

If your program requires you to work in a physical Lehigh laboratory, then lab safety training is mandatory and must be completed. Please note that this does not pertain to computer labs.
