International Student Orientation

Welcome to Denver, Colorado!

The State of Colorado and the City and County of Denver, like the University of Denver, is honored that that you have chosen to pursue your studies on our campus! To officially welcome you to your new community, please take a moment to read a special welcome from the mayor of Denver, the honorable Michael B. Hancock.

Welcome Letter from Mayor Hancock


International Student and Scholar Services hosts orientations for new international students each quarter. During orientation, international student advisors and guest speakers will discuss a variety of topics to help you learn about maintaining your immigration status and being successful in your program.

All new international undergraduate and graduate students must attend the International Student Orientation. This includes transfer students and students who have completed their degrees at the English Language Center. Make sure you keep the orientation date in mind when making your travel plans. If you will need an accommodation for a disability to fully participate in International Student Orientation, please contact ISSS at [email protected] at least one week in advance, if possible.

You must attend International Student Orientation AND complete Immigration Check-in in order to have a registration hold removed from your student account.
