Congratulations on your admission to Binghamton University! The International Student and Scholar Services Office would like to extend a warm welcome to all new international students and scholars.
As you make preparations to begin your studies, you may have many questions. The Fall 2014 International Student Orientation is designed to introduce you to the Binghamton University Campus and to provide you with the answers to your questions about what you can expect during your time here.
During orientation you will receive information on topics such as: US immigration regulations governing employment, travel and course load, University registration procedures, academic success, health insurance and personal health and safety.
You will also have the opportunity to interact with faculty, staff and students, and ask questions about academic offerings, student services, living in the United States and what it is like to be a student at Binghamton University.
If you are a student in F-1 or J-1 status, your participation in Orientation is essential even if you have previously been a student at another US college or university. Each school has different policies, and it is essential that you attend the necessary meetings to help you register for appropriate courses. It is much easier to meet people and get things done before everyone gets busy with classes in the Fall.
The Fall 2014 International Student Orientation for Graduate Students and Graduate Exchange Students is scheduled for Thursday, August 21st and Friday, August 22nd.
The Fall 2014 International Student Orientation for Undergraduate Students and Undergraduate Exchange Students is scheduled for Monday, August 25th – Thursday, August 28th.
The Fall 2014 International Student Orientation for Dual-Diploma Students is scheduled for Monday, August 25th – Thursday, August 28th.
We look forward to meeting you in August!
The Staff of International Student and Scholar Services
