International Student Orientation (ISO) is a pre-orientation program sponsored by the Department of International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) for incoming international students, including transfer international students, and US citizens who have lived abroad. ISO compliments the New Student Orientation program for undergraduates and the Graduate School’s Orientation program by providing international students with information that will assist in their transition to living and studying in the U.S. In addition to providing important information regarding maintaining your F-1 or J-1 immigration status, ISO will cover U.S. classroom culture (for undergraduate students), the UM Code of Conduct, and health and well-being matters.
