The Visiting International Student Program offers a comprehensive orientation program complete with our online orientation modules as well as our mandatory in-person session before classes begin. We look forward to welcoming you to our campus.
Mandatory In-Person Orientation – Spring 2020
Thank you for those who attended our in-person orientation on Friday, January 17th. If you missed the orientation, the VISP staff will be in touch about how to make up that requirement.
Below please find the presentations for each of the concurrent sessions. Also available is your 2019-20 Campus Exchange and Visiting Student Handbook.
Online Orientation Modules
The first module that you should review is our Visa & Arrival page for help with the logistics of arriving in Madison, Wisconsin. Our Course Enrollment and Academics modules will help you find and enroll in courses, as well as learn about how our courses are structured.
The modules on Student Life and Getting Around will help you learn more about how to get involved and how to get to your classes. Finally, our Health & Safety module will help you to stay healthy and safe during your time on our campus.
We recommend you visit each page to gain a broader understanding of your upcoming adventures.
