We are excited that you have chosen University of Texas at Arlington for your education! 

International orientation is designed for the specific needs of international students, to acquaint you, not only with UT Arlington’s approach to academic success, but the cultural norms of this area, federal requirements for international students, and networking with students, staff and resources unique to this university.

International orientation is mandatory for all International students with a F-1 or J-1 Visa.  International students with other visa types should attend the orientation session for their classification (freshman, transfer, graduate)

International students must complete their document check-in at the International Welcome Center, located in the Swift Center, before attending an orientation session.
