Welcome to Northwestern!




International Student Orientation, for both Graduate and Undergraduate students, will be offered remotely and online in September. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is unclear whether Northwestern and the State of Illinois will allow large group gatherings in September and we know that international travelers might have some additional requirements after travel.     

All international students will be invited to join an International Orientation Classroom in CANVAS by August 31, 2021, to begin your orientation by viewing important information about your arrival and start at Northwestern.


International Student Orientation (ISO): Beginning September 11, 2021 with move-in

Graduate International Student Orientation (GISO):  Beginning September 9, 2021


We will provide you more details soon, but for now check out the specific pages for Graduate International Student Orientation (G-ISO) and International Student Orientation (ISO).
