International Student Orientation

International Student Orientation is an essential part of the international student experience and is carefully designed to help launch you into a successful semester at Reed College. This program is required for all F-1 and J-1 visa holders and takes place prior to general New Student Orientation, which international students are also required to attend. 

Registration for International Student Orientation will open June 1 through July 15. Please contact International Student Services at if you have any questions. 

International Student Orientation, hosted by the Office of International Student Services, orients new international students to the United States and Reed and connects each student with an InterConnect peer mentor who will guide students through their first semester, as well as offers new students the option to be paired with a local International Friendship Program host.

We encourage you to visit the international student orientation website for more detailed information.
