International Student Orientation

Your Hofstra journey begins at New Student Orientation! We look forward to welcoming you to the Hofstra Pride at summer orientation and helping you prepare for success at Hofstra. During the program, you will learn about Hofstra's curriculum and campus resources, register for fall classes, tour the campus, meet faculty and staff, and begin to develop lifelong friendships with other new students.

International students are encouraged to attend the New Student Orientation if possible. However, due to travel challenges and immigration procedures, we realize it may not be possible for you to attend one of the New Student Orientation sessions. If you are an undergraduate international student and you are interested in attending the New Student Orientation during the summer, please contact International Student Affairs Office (ISA) at or 516-463-6796 to review the immigration requirements that you will need to fulfill in order to attend. ISA will then aid you in registering for the New Student Orientation.

(Regardless, all new International Students (F-1 and J-1 students) are required to attend the mandatory International Student Orientation held Monday, August 27 - 30. For more information, please visit:
