Undergraduate International Students

All new international undergraduate students admitted through the Office of Global Engagement are required to complete a two-part orientation prior to the start of fall semester.


Part 1: International Student Online Orientation (SOAR)

This online orientation will help you contact your academic advisor and register for classes. It will also make you aware of important policies that you need to know about prior to your arrival at USU. Click on the button to the right to sign up for the online orientation, and then a link will be emailed to you so you can complete it.


Part 2: In-Person International Student Orientation (attendance is mandatory)

The in-person orientation is held August 18 and 19, 2014. This is a required orientation where you will get to know important information about your immigration status, as well as helpful information about the university. You will also get to know your fellow international and U.S. classmates, and learn what it means to be an Aggie. Click on the button to the right to sign up for the online orientation.
