Mandatory Orientation

All approved transfer and new international students (F-1/J-1) are required to attend mandatory orientation. Make sure your travel plans are made accordingly so you do not miss orientation. Failing to attend mandatory orientation may result in difficulties for you when acclimating to the new culture and environment and will result in the cancellation of your Cultural Scholarship.

Separate orientation sessions are available for Houston/Katy Area Students and Victoria Area students. Please bring your immigration documents so we may make copies of them for your student records. Please remember to read all of the relevant Pre-Arrival Information prior to your arrival to the U.S. and UHV.
