Orientation for new international students

The Student Union

Spring 2017

Congratulations on your admission to The University of Akron!  

The staff in the Office of International Programs looks forward to welcoming you to Akron, and we hope that your transition to university life will be a pleasant and enjoyable one.

Please read the Welcome Letter that was sent to you with your I-20/DS-2019. The letter contains valuable information that you need to know.

At orientation, we will help you get acquainted with the campus. We also will cover such important topics as immigration regulations, registering for classes, services offered at UA and campus involvement.

There are also many social events and activities during orientation week that provide you with the opportunity to connect with other students and people in the community.

Orientation will be held from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 10, 2017, in the Student Union ballroom for all students. A fee of $150 is automatically assessed to all new students for this service. (Please note: this fee is subject to revision.)

Attendance is mandatory and attendance will be taken. Students who do not attend orientation are in violation of the UA Student Code of Conduct.
