Dotted lineInternational Student Orientation 2014: An Archway to UGA

ISL organizes an international student orientation each semester for new and transfer international students matriculating to the University of Georgia. The information included in the ISL orientations is not covered by any other orientation program on campus. The spring and summer orientations are a one-day event and the fall orientation is a five-day program. Highlights from ISL's orientation schedules include information concerning immigration issues, taxes for non-residents, cross-cultural adjustment, housing assistance, course registration procedures, Social Security Cards, UGA payroll, and campus tours. Current UGA students serve as orientation leaders (called World Leaders) to assist with international orientation sessions.

International Student Orientation this year will be from August 4th – 8th, 2014, with additional social/educational events on August 9th and August 10th. We are hosting a number of informative and important sessions during the week including information about Social Security Numbers, housing, and course registration information. We strongly recommend that all new and transfer international students attend this orientation program.

New International Students coming to UGA have TWO options for International Student Life orientation registration. They can opt for orientation ONLY, or they can choose orientation PLUS temporary housing. Temporary housing is an additional $335 and is available from August 4-August 11. See below for more specific information about pricing and dates (note: all prices are listed in US dollars).
