Orientation dates for Fall 2018 are forthcoming.  As a reference, in Fall 2017 Orientation was from August 7 to August 18 for international students, and August 9 to August 18 for domestic students.

Orientation activities are mandatory and all students are expected to participate in the activities during the program. Please make plans accordingly to be here.

Please Arrive Early

Orientation is a very busy time, with events beginning at 8:45am and finishing at 5pm almost every day. Therefore, you should arrive at least a few days ahead of time in order to find time to get settled with your new surroundings.  You will not have much time do so during Orientation.

These dates are forthcoming, therefore please check their website periodically for updates.  You will also receive further information about ISO via email from their office.  Should you have any questions about ISO for Fall 2018, please email them at .
