International Education is here to assist new international students in making the transition to both the University of Richmond and to the United States.

International Student Orientation

New international students were notified by International Education in June if they must participate in international student orientation, which will acquaint you with various aspects of campus life as well as issues specific to international students such as immigration, health insurance, and cultural and academic adjustment.

International orientation will be held from Sunday, August 15 through mid-day on Wednesday, August 18. After international orientation, new degree-seeking students will be required to attend New Spider Orientation from Wednesday, August 18 through Saturday, August 21. Mandatory sessions and activities for exchange and visiting students will be held on Thursday, August 19 and Friday, August 20.
