Dear New International Student:
Congratulations on your admission to Binghamton University!
As you make preparations to begin your studies, you may have many questions such as: When will you learn what courses you should register for? When will you be able to meet other international students? And most importantly, what are the US federal immigration regulations that govern my F1 or J1 visa status?
The Fall 2013 International Student Orientation is designed to provide you with the answers to your questions about what you can expect 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 and attended the orientation program there. 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.
Graduate Students: The Fall 2013 International Student Orientation for Graduate Students and Graduate Exchange students is scheduled for Thursday, August 15-Friday, August 16, 2013.
Undergraduate Students: The Fall 2013 International Student Orientation for undergraduates is scheduled for Monday, August 19, 2013 through Thursday, August 22, 2013. For exchange undergraduate students the Orientation begins Sunday, August 18, 2013. For dual-diploma students the Orientation begins on Saturday, August 17, 2013. For students who participated in the Summer 2013 Academic Success Program, International Student Orientation Events are scheduled for Monday, August 19 and Tuesday, August 20, 2013.
During orientation you will receive information that you won't easily obtain at any other time. International Student Orientation provides essential information on:
