International Student Orientation

Congratulations on your acceptance to Indiana State University (ISU).  We are very excited that you have chosen Indiana State University to pursue your higher education experience and we look forward to having you on our campus. These are difficult times, we are steadfast in ensuring that you receive an educational experience that you have sought for.

Ensuring your health and wellbeing is the cornerstone of providing a wholesome environment within which to live, work and study. To that end, Indiana State University requires all students arriving from another country to self-quarantine for 14 days before arriving on campus. All undergraduate students are required to arrive in the United States no later than January 1st and graduate students no later than January 5th. For any reason if you believe you might not be able to arrive in the US by the above date, I would encourage you to defer your admission to summer 2021 or a later term. You can defer your admission for up to one academic year. To request deferment of admission please contact
