International Parent Orientation

September 11-13, 2019- more detailed schedule coming soon!

International Parent Orientation will include a welcome reception, information sessions for parents, campus tours and excursions in Evanston and Chicago.  

While we cannot help parents secure a B-1/B-2 visa for entry into the U.S., upon successful ISO registration, each student will receive an emailed confirmation with an attached letter inviting parents to attend ISO. This letter may be useful in securing a visa if required.
