International Student Orientation

We are excited to welcome you to the campus community!

We recognize that attending university in a new country is a big transition. Our New Student Orientation program is designed to make that transition easier. Because the information you'll learn at Orientation is so valuable, it is mandatory for all new incoming international students to attend.

International Student Orientation is scheduled three days before the semester begins.

Here's what you can expect:
  • Take the Skills Assessment Inventory to help identify needed coursework.
  • Learn what you need to know from key offices on campus.
  • Meet with your academic advisor and register for classes.
  • Tour the campus and Buffalo area, visit Niagara Falls and meet other students!
