Welcome to The University of Toledo!
This page is designed to help you understand what to expect at International Student Orientation (ISO). This orientation is specialized for F-1 and J-1 students who are new to The University of Toledo including international graduate, undergraduate, transfer, and direct from high school students.

ISO occurs three times a year: in fall, spring, and summer, prior to the beginning of each term. New international students should begin to plan for orientation as soon as they receive their Form I-20 or DS-2019 in the mail.
What do I do at Orientation? 
During the program you will  gain  knowledge about the University of Toledo such as immigration check-in, placement testing, paying for school, acquiring permanent housing, health insurance and learn about the many education opportunities that UT offers both inside and outside of the classroom.
