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. Note that there are separate mandatory orientations based on academic level. Learn more about those below.
At ISO, UD leadership and CGPS immigration advisors share information about everything you need to know to maintain your visa and student status and get connected to services at UD. ISO is mandatory for new international students.
