WelcomeWelcome new international students!

International Student Orientation (mandatory for all F-1 and J-1 international students)

Spring 2015

Spring new student orientation will be on Tuesday, March 24th from 8am to 4pm. The orientation will be held in William Phillip Hall (WPH), which you can find directions to on the campus map here. Orientation is mandatory. Lunch will be provided. 

Bring your passport and I-20; we will need these items to register you in SEVIS. You can also bring a printout of your I-94 record; if you are not able to print this out before orientation, there will be time in the computer lab to do this. 

The first day of spring quarter classes is Monday, March 30, 2015. If you have any questions about when you should register and important dates for spring 2015, please take a look at this handout.

Please note the following important links. We will discuss these items at orientation, and they are listed here for your reference. Find the answers to more Frequently Asked Questions on our website here.
