Orientation

WelcomeWelcome new international students!

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

Winter 2015

Winter new student orientation will be Monday, December 15 OR Tuesday, December 16, 2014 from 9am to 4pm. You can CHOOSE ONE DAY that you want to attend. Lunch both days 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 winter quarter classes is Monday, January 5, 2015. If you have any questions about when you should register and important dates for winter 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.
