International Student Orientation (ISO)
International Student Orientation is a pre-orientation program for new University of Miami international freshmen and transfer students, which complements the University's new student orientation program by providing new international students with information that will assist in their transition to living and studying in the U.S. Participants are provided with the opportunity to meet returning students and administrators who will discuss immigration rules international students must follow to stay in the U.S., academic expectations in the U.S., local community resources, life and customs in the U.S., and available health care, emergency assistance, and insurance coverage. New international students will also have an opportunity to meet and get acquainted with new peers. ISO is held at the University of Miami Coral Gables campus in August and January.
