Welcome! As you get settled at NSOE, here are some web pages that may help:
- NSOE Doctoral Handbook: This is a great resource, bookmark it! Information on support, prelims, defending, leadership, etc.
- Duke Graduate School Admitted Students: includes a checklist and timeline for things to do before you arrive, and links to information about housing, email, transportation, accommodations, registering for classes, getting a DukeCard, and similar needs common to incoming Duke graduate students.
- Nicholas School Human Resources: how to get your salary and other information for new employees.
- Nicholas School Office of Information and Technology Quick Reference: provides how-to videos, links to free and necessary Duke-specific software, etc.
- Duke Students: links to resources used by all Duke students.
In the summer before your first semester, you should get emails from Nicholas School and Duke Graduate School staff directing you to prepare, and the Graduate School and NPAC will run orientation events that should also help. If you cannot find anything you need, please contact an NPAC representative.
