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 will not miss orientation. Failing to attend mandatory orientation will result in difficulties for you when acclimating to the new culture and environment and cancellation of the Cultural.

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 the relevant Pre-Arrival Information prior to your arrival to the U.S. and UHV.
