EAP Orientation

Students playing world Jenga

Overview

Welcome new Aggies! Services for International Students and Scholars (SISS) is delighted that you have chosen UC Davis as your study abroad destination.  As a J-1 student, you are part of the U.S. Exchange Visitor Program which promotes mutual understanding between people of the United States and other countries through cultural exchange. As part of your exchange, you are required to attend an SISS orientation session.

When to Arrive

All students coming to the U.S. to study on an I-20 or DS-2019 can enter the United States up to 30 days before the program start date listed on these documents. We strongly recommend that students take advantage of this early arrival option to have enough time to recover from jet lag, become familiar with the campus and community, and finalize housing before attending mandatory SISS Orientation.

If you are having trouble finding housing during the SISS Orientation dates, contact SISS for information on how you can secure TEMPORARY housing for yourself.
