Friday, September 20, 2013: Conditional Admission Program (CAP) Orientation
Monday, September 23, 2013: International Student Orientation (OSU, PW, AE, CPP & CAPN)
At the beginning of each term, INTO OSU and International Student Advising and Services (ISAS) hold a mandatory orientation program for new international students. This program is designed to provide you with valuable information and facilitate your transition to OSU. By participating in the International Student Orientation, you will gain essential information about:
- immigration rules and regulations that affect your visa status
- student health services and health insurance requirements at OSU
- academic life at OSU and how to register for classes
- campus and community resources
- opportunities to meet other new international and domestic students at OSU
All newly admitted international students are required to attend orientation and the immigration document check-in. If you do not attend both, International Student Advising and Services will place a hold on your registration. For more details, please send us questions at email@example.com
To cover the cost of orientation, all degree and exchange students will be charged an orientation fee of $35 (winter and spring terms) or $50 (fall term). This fee will be automatically charged to your OSU student account. INTO OSU students have the orientation covered in the fees for their programs.
In addition to the orientation, international students are also required to come to the Immigration Document Check-In and bring photocopies of the documents listed on the following link: Documents to Bring for IDC.
If you are not able to arrive in the US by the orientation date, you may schedule a make-up orientation session through the front desk of ISAS in Heckart Lodge, or by calling 541-737-6310.
Students who fail to attend both the mandatory International Student Orientation and the Immigration Document Check In will have a registration HOLD placed on their records. If you are unable to attend one or both of the sessions above, please contact International Student Advising and Services at 541-737-6310 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
