OGS offers an orientation program of information sessions and social events for new graduate students entering the university in F-1 or J-1 status in Spring 2019. Interactive sessions focus on academic life, immigration regulations, health care, employment, and more!
All students in F-1 and J-1 status are required to attend all orientation sessions in order to remain in legal status. Students in F-1 and J-1 status are automatically registered for orientation and charged a $50 international orientation fee regardless of whether or not they attend the optional events during the program.
Being organized and prepared before you leave home will make your arrival much easier! Below you will find a checklist of tasks to complete before and after your arrival at Georgetown. Remember that your academic departments and programs may require additional tasks to be completed so be sure to read all information you receive from Georgetown University.
Are you a new international student enrolling a program at the School of Continuing Studies (SCS)? If so, SCS orientation information may be found on the SCS Admitted International Students website.
