For this new IEP semester we have around 60 new students and around 80 in total, counting the returning students from previous semesters!
The first part of the registration starts at the Department of International Admissions & Immigration Office, also know as DIAI. This is very exciting for students because this is the first time that many of them finally get to meet their admissions counselor; this is the person who helped them during the application process when they were still in their home country. (Learn more about our Counselors HERE). Students will complete all of the immigration paperwork and receive information in our office before proceeding.
At the International Office, also referred to as the IO, student workers and staff help the students with important information about the program the students are in.
During the first week, there are had several orientation sessions held in the IO where new students learn about life in the United States. The topics of these sessions range from: getting a phone, opening a bank account, and knowing how to be prepared for different situations they may encounter in a new country. There are also group meals during the day, where students have the opportunity to get to know one another over breakfast and lunch.
