International Student Orientation

Welcome to The University of Toledo!

This page is designed to help you understand what to expect at International Student Orientation. 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.

International Student Orientation 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.  Orientation sessions are conducted virtually so you can participate in your home country or here in Toledo.

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.

All F-1 and J-1 student visa holders who have received admission and an I-20/DS-2019 from The University of Toledo are required to attend International Student Orientation.  (Not an F or J visa holder? Click here)
