International Student Orientation @ UConn

ISSS Online Orientation

UConn offers many orientation programs to new students- you are required to attend some orientation programs, while others are optional.  ISSS Orientation for International Students, Orientation for Undergraduate students, and Graduate School Orientation for Graduate students will be online for Fall 2021.  The Orientation will be available in early July and all students will be notified by email.  If you are a graduate student, your academic program or academic department might also require you to attend a departmental orientation, in person or online. There are also orientation programs for new Teaching Assistants as well.

ISSS Orientation for New International Students is available online in Husky CT.  Students must log in with their NetID and Password.  Click on “Organizations” and select “ISSS Orientation for New International Students”.  The deadline to complete ISSS orientation is September 13, 2021.

ISSS In-Person Welcome Programs

UPDATE: Unfortunately due to the expected tropical storm/hurricane, ISSS will not hold in-person orientation activities for international graduate students at the Storrs campus on Monday, August 23. Activities that were planned for the rest of the week are still scheduled.  ISSS will offer in-person welcome programs for new international students in undergraduate and graduate programs at the Storrs campus this fall. These orientation programs are not required, but you are highly encouraged to attend. These programs are intended for both new students starting Fall 2021, as well as students who began their program from outside the U.S. and will arrive to campus this fall for the first time. A program schedule will be posted soon. Students must sign up to participate in the in-person welcome program through the link below.
