New International Student Orientation

Mandatory Check-in Workshop

Learn the basics of keeping legal in the US as an F-1 or J-1 international student, employment in the US, cultural adjustment and coping skills, US classroom culture, safety and security, and more.

If you see your school name next to a session below, it's best for you to go to that session. Please note, if you see a session with a school name, only attend it if you are in that school (for example only CAS students should attend the International Student Orientation for CAS) because the session is specifically designed for students in that school. If your school isn't listed below, feel free to attend any session without a school name included in the title.

More sessions will be added soon for the months of July, August, and September.

Who does NOT have to attend International Student Orientation:

  • Dependents of F-1 and J-1 students
  • International students returning from a leave of absence from NYU
  • F-1 and J-1 students with documents issued by the NYU American Language Institute (ALI)
