New International Student Orientation

Before the start of each semester, Central Michigan University hosts a series of arrival and orientation programs for all new international students. During the mandatory orientation, you will become familiar with the campus and resources that are available to you. The program covers:

  • OGE Services.
  • Immigration Regulations.
  • Campus Safety.
  • Health Insurance. 
  • On-Campus Employment.
  • Local Transportation.
  • Campus Activities.
  • Student Organizations.

More information about orientation will be provided during your check-in session. You will receive access to the online Pre-Arrival Information when your I-20 is issued. This Pre-Arrival Information will contain information about the visa process, housing, health insurance, and many other important topics.
