Orientation Information

Find orientation information for new international students.

Orientation for F-1 and J-1 International Students and Scholars is mandatory. It is also an essential part of your Adelphi experience and a requirement from the Office of International Student Services. It will help to make your adjustment to college life easier, your transition to Adelphi a smooth one and provide you with essential information regarding your immigration status necessary to be in compliance with federal regulations.

As an international student, whether a resident or commuter, we want you to feel confident, focused and comfortable on your first day of class. A big part of that is achieved at Orientation where you will learn about the campus and get to know other members of your class.
