International Orientation

International Orientation

Tuesday, August 20, 2019

female international student, RinWelcome to Alfred State!

In order to help in your transition, we've put together a comprehensive new student orientation program that is geared specifically towards our inbound international students. Your international orientation is mandatory and will provide you with a detailed overview of the Alfred State campus, with important introductions to various services such as Health and Wellness, Academics, Student Success Center, Student Life, and Athletics. We will also be going over important information that pertains to student Visa regulations, the American classroom and culture, banking, driving, on-campus employment and taking placement exams (don’t worry - these exam(s) just help provide us with a clear understanding of what class you should be placed in given your understanding of the subject matter).

Our goal for new international students is to not only orient you to your new educational home and the surrounding area but to help prepare you for personal and academic success!

We are so happy to welcome you to our Alfred State family!

Please note: you must notify the International Education office with your travel Itinerary to let us know if you anticipate needing a ride on one the available Alfred State shuttle services from the Greater Rochester International Airport (ROC). If needing this shuttle service we advise that you register your request for the shuttle that arrives on the Monday before International Student Orientation begins. Please note; shuttle reservations should be submitted at least 10 days in advance.
