International Student Orientation
Due to global health concerns and travel restrictions, orientation for the Spring
2021 semester will be completely virtual. The orientation fee has been temporarily
reduced to $45 for students entering the U.S. for the Spring 2021 semester.
Questions or concerns can be directed to email@example.com.
The International Student and Scholar Services provides orientation for all new international students, including graduate, undergraduate, Learning Abroad exchange students, and those participating
in other short-term exchange programs. All new University of Utah students who will
study on an F-1 or J-1 student visa, as well as any students who have been unenrolled
for three or more semesters, are required to attend International Student Orientation.
This orientation has been designed specifically for international students, and covers
very important information about maintaining visa status, safety and wellness resources,
tips for cultural adjustment, and much more. Other orientations on campus, including
New Student Orientation, do NOT fulfill this requirement. Failure to complete the International Student Orientation
requirements (see Steps 1-5 below) will prevent class registration, collection of
transcripts, and can also result in SEVIS record termination.
Please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns.
Most international Exchange Visitors on the J-1 visa (e.g., research scholars and
visiting faculty) are not required to attend International Student Orientation, but
they do have the option to attend the Exchange Visitor Orientation. J-1 Exchange Visitors in the “student” category are required to attend International Student orientation with ISSS.
