The Office of 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

All new international students on non-immigrant visas coming from outside the U.S. must attend international student orientation, which will acquaint them with various aspects of campus life as well as issues specific to international students such as immigration, health insurance, and cultural and academic adjustment.

In the Fall 2018 semester, orientation will be held from Sunday, August 19, 2018 to Wednesday, August 22, 2018 with additional activities for exchange and visiting students on Thursday, August 23 and Friday, August 24.
