New Students

International Student Services (ISS) holds the International Student Orientation program for new international students at the beginning of the fall and spring semesters. The program is mandatory for all new international undergraduate and graduate students, including transfer students.

ISS has planned a thorough program that will introduce you to the University of Arizona (UA) and provide you with assistance regarding the following: immigration information, academic resources, course registration, cultural adjustment, UA services and departments, fun social events, campus tours, housing assistance and more!

To learn more about banking in the US, cell phones, transportation, Tucson restaurants and more, please take a look at our International Student Resource Manual to prepare for your experience at UA and in Tucson.
