We are so happy you have decided to join UD!

International Student Orientation (ISO) and other pre-arrival and welcome events are designed to help you transition to UD and the U.S. and to complete government check-in so you can be registered in SEVIS.

At ISO, UD leadership and ISSS advisors share information about everything you need to know to maintain your visa and student status and get connected to services at UD. Note: ISO is mandatory for new international students.

New international students who missed ISO on August 26, 2022 should join the following webinar:
