Make-up Orientation for Fall 2023

Did you miss the OISS in-person international student orientation earlier this month? We've got you covered!

The Office of International Student and Scholar Services (OISS) is hosting a condensed make-up virtual orientation for new F-1/J-1 international students. In addition to introducing our student advising team, we will provide an overview of student visa compliance requirements, review services provided by OISS, and discuss important reminders for your transition.
