Mandatory International Student Orientation
The University of Wyoming offers a campus orientation program at the beginning of the fall and spring semesters. This mandatory program is designed to acquaint incoming international students with the Laramie and university communities through a series of informative activities and services. Students will discuss academic issues, tour the campus, meet with UW officials and student representatives, hear from student support organizations, and learn about special services that are available to international students. It also offers students an opportunity to learn about immigration regulations, procedures, and policies that will affect them while they are studying in the United States. As part of the orientation program students will complete various forms that are required by International Students and Scholars. These documents will help ISS report required arrival and immigration information to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). That is why it is critical that each new international student arrive early and attend the orientation session at the beginning of their first semester at UW. We urge students to make their travel plans accordingly so that they are here in time to attend their scheduled orientation program.
Classes for Fall 2016 begin Monday, August 29, 2016. There will be a mandatory orientation that you must be present for on Thursday, August 25th and Friday, August 26th, 2016.
