International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS) organizes orientation and welcome events for incoming international students every Spring and Fall semester. These events provide an opportunity for students to meet their future classmates and get oriented to The University of Texas at Austin, the City of Austin, the State of Texas, and the United States.
This Spring, all welcome events and orientation programs will be offered online with some small group events taking place on campus prior to the start of the semester.
