Scott you'll have to let the lawn establish first, that will take about 6 months, now is a good time to lay turf or sow a lawn, keep it well watered especially during dry spells and don't cut it till it's at least 5 inches high, then for first cut have your mower on the highest setting it will go. Don't be tempted to do anything this year other than cutting.
You may get settlement, so watch for it, you can fill any dips with sieved topsoil mixed with grass seed. Mounds are dealt with differently, you cut the turf and scrape out some of the soil then put the turf back down.
I don't treat lawns under a year old, but see how it's growing next year before even thinking about it.
If you need more help just ask.
