International Student Orientation

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.

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