Each Fall, the International New Student Orientation (I-NSO) program provides an introduction to Georgetown for all new undergraduate students entering Georgetown in F-1 or J-1 visa status including sessions and activities on the U.S. academic system, U.S. immigration regulations, general university services and resources, and the culture of the United States.

I-NSO is required for all international undergraduate degree, exchange, SFS-Q, and transfer students in F-1 or J-1 status enrolling in Fall 2018. Students in F-1 and J-1 status are automatically registered for orientation and charged a new student orientation fee regardless of whether or not they attend the optional events during the program.

On-Campus Housing & Move-In

New undergraduates, OGE exchanges, SFS-Q and transfer students living on campus will be assigned a specific move-in time. The Office of Residential Living can provide information on move-in, facilities, and the housing assignment process later this spring.
