Undergraduate International Students

International Orientation
All international students (undergraduate and graduate level) are required to attend our in-person orientation day. For the Spring 2023 semester, this orientation will take place on Friday, January 6th, 2023. Please plan to attend this orientation day as you make your travel arrangements.

The New Student Orientation process contains five modules* (see descriptions below). To deliver the correct information at exactly the right time, module one and two for the Spring 2023 semester opens October 31, 2022, and module five will be completed during your first semester at USU. Modules two, three, and four will help you register for classes, prepare to begin at USU, and give you final reminders before you arrive on campus. The fifth module will give you information that is relevant once you have started your first semester.

Incoming Undergraduate International Students can register for spring 2023 the third week of November, based on earned credit hours on your Utah State transcript. Module two will tell you everything you need to know and do prior to registration (you will have a registration hold until you complete module two).

If you are still unsure if you are attending Utah State University, we recommend that you begin New Student Orientation, and register for classes as if you are attending. It is very easy to get a refund of your orientation fee, and to drop classes if you decide not to attend.

If you have questions, please email Stacie Denetsosie, International Orientation Program Coordinator at stacie.denetsosie@usu.edu or the Office of Global Engagement at usuintl@usu.edu. We are happy to help you in any way that we can. 

*If you no longer wish to attend Utah State please notify stacie.denetsosie@usu.edu as soon as possible.
