International Orientation for the Class of 2021
August 30 - September 2
International students are invited to attend International Orientation (IO).
International students have the opportunity to be one of the first groups of students to arrive on campus. These additional days will allow you to settle into your dorm room, navigate your way around campus, learn practical information that will help you adjust to life in the U.S. (and Princeton), as well as meet other international students before the rest of the incoming freshman class arrive.
IO will cover practical immigration information regarding your F-1 student visa status, including how to maintain your status, employment in the U.S., social security numbers, travel, and more. Throughout IO, the Davis International Center (Davis IC) will also provide helpful information related to your adjustment to both the U.S. and Princeton culture – academic success, bank accounts, cell phone providers, campus and social life, and more
