Fall 2020 Virtual International Student Orientation

International Student Orientation (ISO) provides important information about the Hofstra campus, immigration regulations, staying healthy and safe, academic requirements and the many campus services available to help you succeed and have a great experience at Hofstra. During your virtual orientation you will have the opportunity to participate in many activities that will prepare you to become a member of the Hofstra community whether you are located within or outside the U.S. 

International Student Orientation for students beginning their program in Fall 2020 will take place virtually over three days from Monday, August 17 through Wednesday, August 19, 2020. Detailed information about orientation will be emailed to the Hofstra email address of accepted students whose I-20 or DS-2019 has been issued. It is strongly recommended that all new international students attend virtual ISO.

We encourage you to review our information on how to prepare for your arrival in the U.S. at www.hofstra.edu/prearrival. Please note that international students are allowed to enter the U.S. no more than 30 days before the program start date listed on their I-20. Please make appropriate arrangements for transportation from the airport to campus after you arrive in the U.S. Hofstra's Office of Residence Life will provide information regarding move-in procedures for new international students over the summer. 

Learn more about ISO on International Student Affairs' webpage. We look forward to seeing you at orientation and if we can be of any assistance, please feel free to contact us at international{at}hofstra.edu!
