New International Student Orientation
Get ready for success.
International students coming to Beloit College for the first time should plan to arrive on August 13, 2021. Orientation will begin the next day, and classes will begin on August 23.
International Student Orientation is an important step in making the most of your experience at Beloit College. Prior to the start of the semester each fall and spring, we gather students together who come to the college from outside the United States. Orientation offers you opportunities to learn about the college and to learn about each other. It also gives you a little more time to settle in to your new college home. All new international students are expected to participate fully in the entire orientation program.
What happens during orientation?
During orientation, we’ll have a variety of events and activities. You’ll learn about many of the resources at the college and meet staff from various offices and departments. Session topics will include immigration information, cultural adjustment, academic strategies and more. You’ll meet your academic advisor and register for courses. We’ll also explore the community, eat together, and have some fun together. Of course, you’ll have lots of opportunities to ask questions.
