Topics covered during orientation: English placement testing, ACCUPLACER testing, registration, health insurance, banking, student life, immigration rules, and more. During orientation, you will meet with an academic counselor and register for classes. All new international students are required to attend this important orientation.

Housing Arrangements

Housing arrangements should be made prior to your arrival. The International Studies Program can assist you with determining which housing option is best for you. We suggest students arrange to live at Lake Land Living Apartments due to its proximity to campus. For this apartment complex, you must submit housing forms and a deposit of 5 months rent plus security deposit prior to arrival.  Please contact for more information on how to reserve a room at Lake Land Living Apartments. Basic furniture is provided, but students will need to provide their own kitchen utensils, bed linens, etc.  Students planning on purchasing a car upon arrival may choose to live elsewhere in the area.

Other housing options can be found here.
