Fall Orientation begins Wednesday, August 27.
UMass Dartmouth requires all new international students—both F-1 and J-1 students—to attend International Student Orientation, a multi-day orientation program, in addition to orientation activities for all new students. Orientation provides information sessions about the university and life in the U.S.
One of the most important things we do at Orientation is review the regulations for maintaining your visa status.
At Orientation, we'll also:
- welcome you to campus
- introduce you to the culture
- share information about university services
- inform you about university policy
- and encourage you make new friends!
Watch your email for our welcome letter.
