Fall 2020 Events

September 1-9 | Graduate Apartments Open

September 4-10, 2020 |   International Student Orientation (ISO)

With a focus on matters like immigration and medical insurance, as well as advice on acclimating to US academic culture and life in Evanston, ISO is the mandatory orientation program for those with an F-1 or J-1 immigration status and is encouraged for others who feel it could be a beneficial transition aid. Students register for ISO within the Wildcat Welcome Information Form (due July 9). Visit the Office of International Student and Scholar Services website for more information.

September 6-15, 2020 | Wildcat Welcome (New Student Orientation)

No other arrangements or events should be scheduled during this required weeklong new student orientation as it is required for all incoming undergraduate students. New students will meet with their academic advisor during this time to plan their academic schedule and to register for fall quarter classes; no advising or registration occurs during the summer months (transfer students will register for classes after talking with their school/advisor via email/phone). Learn more on the Wildcat Welcome page.

September 6-9, 2020 | Undergraduate Student Move-In

Move-in will run from 8 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. for all new and returning students. Students will learn of their residence hall placement by August 7 and will sign up for move-in appointments. All new students arriving on any of these days will be able to fully participate in Wildcat Welcome.
