International Student Orientation (ISO)

International Student Orientation (ISO) is required for all new international students each term. During ISO, students will meet the International Student Services staff, learn about campus policies and resources, learn about immigration rules, register for classes (undergraduate students only) and prepare to be a successful student.

ISO Schedule

The orientation schedule for each term will be posted two (2) weeks before the start of ISO. Orientation lasts until the official first day of classes, so you can expect to be busy with activities every day. Please do not schedule other appointments during ISO as most sessions are required to attend.


Plan your flight itinerary to arrive and get settled in before the start of ISO. If you need temporary housing before you move into your permanent housing, you can sign up for the short-term homestay program. For more information, go to Friendship Foundation for International Students. For hotels near the UO campus, go to Eugene Visitor Center.
