International Student Orientation
All entering internationals on F or J visa are required to attend the annual International Student Orientation. Be sure to arrange your flight arrival to enter the US at least one day before the day of International Orientation. The immigration requirements and legal obligations to maintain your legal status will be given as well as other items of information. In both the fall and spring semesters, the International Student Orientation typically falls on the Monday preceding the first day of class. For spring entrants, International Orientation falls on the Thursday preceding the first day of class.
The International Student Orientation and the general student orientation are two different events. The international student orientation is held first and is mandatory whereas the general orientation is optional to all new students.
