International Student Orientation

At the beginning of each term, the Office of Global Services (OGS) conducts orientation sessions, events, and activities designed to assure you have completed all U.S. documentation requirements, to assist you with enrollment in your courses, and to provide you with information and support to ease your transition to life in the United States and at Northeastern University. At each session, you will also have the opportunity to meet other international students, learn from shared experiences, and find any assistance you may need.

Orientation week is very important. Make sure you register (this is required for international freshman and transfer students), attend every mandatory session, and attend as many scheduled events as you can to avoid missing other important information during your first few weeks on campus.

For a schedule of required sessions and other events, see the OGS website. You do not need to register for OGS orientation.
