WelcomeWelcome new international students!

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

Autumn 2014

Autumn new international student orientation will be Monday, September 22 & Tuesday, September 23, 2014 from 9am to 4pm both days. Please meet in the William W. Philip Hall (WPH) on campus. 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 and health insurance confirmation; if you are not able to print these out before orientation, there will be time in the computer lab to do this. 

The first day of autumn quarter classes is Wednesday, September 24, 2014. If you have any questions about when you should register and important dates for autumn 2014, 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.
