International Student Orientation
International Student Orientation (ISO) is mandatory for new international students. To ensure a smooth transition to Webster University, international students must attend an International Student Orientation organized by the Multicultural Center and International Student Affairs (MCISA) each semester. This program is required for all international students attending the University in F-1 or J-1 visa status, including students who are transferring from another U.S educational institution or studying abroad from our overseas campuses.
During the International Student Orientation, we cover many important topics which help you get acquainted with Webster campus, services available to students, U.S. education system, American culture and most importantly immigration regulations pertaining to your immigration status.
International Student Orientation also presents a wonderful opportunity for you to meet and make friends with other new international students from around the world. Accompanying family members are welcome to attend the orientation, although most activities are designed specifically for students.
Please visit the Multicultural Center and International Student Affairs (MCISA) International Student Orientation website to sign up for the orientation.
