International Student Services hosts International Orientation for all new international students approximately 1 week prior to the start of classes (the start date on your I-20). Attendance is mandatory for all new students!  It is your responsibility to ensure that you have enough time to apply for an F1 visa and arrive to the College to attend International Orientation.

Start dates for the semester are not flexible and students MUST report to the College by the first week of classes.
