International Student Orientation
All students are invited by the Office of Student Affairs to attend the general orientation program. The full schedule is available at www.sva.edu/orientation.
The International Student Office (ISO) hosts several programs specifically for international students. These programs are designed to inform you of your rights and responsibilities as an F-1 student or J-1 exchange visitor in the United States and assist with your transition to SVA. Attendance is mandatory where noted. Please notify the ISO in advance if you cannot attend.
The following handouts will be available at orientation.
