Transfer Orientation

Your required SISS orientation is part of the general Transfer Orientation. The SISS mandatory session is the last session of the day and takes place in the International Center.

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.
