The following groups of international students are required to complete the online orientation:
- New international students beginning their first academic program at UC.
- Current international students who will change their non immigrant status to F-1 or J-1.
- Returning international students who have taken a leave of absence from UC and wish to resume enrollment.
The online orientation will provide you with important information that will help prepare you for living and studying in the U.S. It will also provide you with information about maintaining your immigration status, registering for classes, finding on-campus employment, staying healthy and safe, and many other topics.
You can access the online orientation any time prior to your first day of classes at UC. Completing the online orientation will not replace the requirement that you attend immigration check-in or the New International Student Conference.
The online orientation consists of several sections, some of which have a quiz at the end of the section. You are required to review each section in the given order and answer 100% of the quiz questions correctly.
