  International Student Orientation

Mandatory orientation takes place each semester. For details and times, please contact the Office of International Student Retention Service at 770-420-4392 or e-mail codera1@kennesaw.edu.

All newly accepted F1 visa students are required to attend an International Student Orientation before attending your first semester at KSU. Other international students are encouraged to attend and participate in this informative program.

The International Student Orientation will help you stay in status and remain eligible for Optional Practical Training (OPT) when you graduate, if that is your desire. It will also give you information that will assist you in adjusting to KSU and excelling academically.

The International Orientation will include information about visas and the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) which tracks international students and shares the data with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Also included will be information on registering with Social Security, filing income taxes, and obtaining a Georgia driver's license. Much more information will be shared at International Orientation. The Orientation Manual (link below)l will help you with most every question you could have, plus supplies locations, emails, phone numbers, and other pertinent information about all the services and departments at KSU. You will also find out about employment on campus and academic support services available to you.

International Student Orientation sessions are scheduled every semester. You will receive information via your personal mail and email at your official student address. You can also check the SDC Calendar of Activities to find the scheduled date, time, and location each semester.

You are encouraged to also attend a general student orientation presented by the CAPS Center. The general student orientation sessions provide additional information about KSU as well as academic advisement and registration for classes. Freshman orientation sessions and transfer orientation sessions are scheduled multiple times each semester.
