International New Student Orientation

Undergraduate International Students are required to attend orientation. The purpose of International Student Orientation is to provide new students with valuable information that will help them adjust to studying and living in the U.S. and the opportunity to get to know other students and ISU staff. Again, attendance at this program is required. Undergraduate International students who do not attend orientation will not be allowed to register for classes and will have to start classes the following semester.

In addition, an Immigration Seminar is required for all international students. Topics included in the orientation and immigration seminars are important immigration regulations, housing and dining services, healthcare, banking, transportation, student employment, safety, community engagement, and student activities and organizations.
