Orientation Information

All new international students are required to participate in the International Student Orientation (ISO) program. The ISO program is mandatory for ALL new exchange students, graduates, undergraduates, transfers, and sponsored students whether you are arriving in the United States for the first time or you are transferring from another U.S. school.

All new international students will be assessed a $100 international orientation fee regardless of their attendance.

At the orientation, we will provide you with important information about campus, health and insurance requirements, and other matters pertaining to your status as an international student in the United States. In addition, students will be able to participate in some optional activities such as a guided tour of Cincinnati. You will also get the chance to meet current students from the U.S. and around the world through the ISO Team!
