International Student Orientation

All incoming international students are required to attend both their program-specific New Student Orientation (NSO) and International Student Orientation (ISO). These are two separate programs. The ISO will address immigration regulations and issues specific to starting courses at HSC as an international student. You must bring your passport, I-20, I-94, and your current U.S. residential address to International Student Orientation.
