International Student Orientation @ UConn

Fall 2020 Orientation Information

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 2020.  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 will send an invitation to participate in ISSS online Orientation in mid to late July.  ISSS understands that starting a new degree program, moving to a new country, and getting settled in a new environment can be scary and stressful.  To help students prepare for their new student career at UConn, ISSS has arranged a series of Pre-Arrival Live Chats where you will have an opportunity to listen to important information about coming to UConn.
