International Orientations

Spring 2016 New International Student Orientation

There is no formal orientation program at UC Santa Cruz for students beginning outside the Fall quarter. However, new international students to UC Santa Cruz are still expected to attend a mandatory status presentation given by IEO. 

All new international students must attend their Maintaining Immigration Status presentation on April 1 from 10:00am-11:00am in Classroom Unit Building 201. You are expected to arrive in California by March 28 for the start of classes.

For Spring workshops & events sponsored by the International Education Office and other campus partners, please visit our Events page.

As a reminder, please note that all UCSC F-1 and J-1 international students (undergraduate, transfer, graduate, and UCEAP reciprocity) are required to complete their mandatory Visa Check-in within 15 days of the Spring quarter start date.
