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.

Fall 2021 International Student Orientation (ISO) will take place from August 18-21 and is required for all F-1 and J-1 visa holders. The program is hosted by international student services and orients international students to the United States and Reed and also connects each student with an InterConnect peer mentor who will guide students through their first semester. There is no registration fee for ISO; all activities and meals are free for participants. New international students and sophomore international students arriving to Reed for the first time are invited to participate in Fall 2021 ISO activities.

Please confirm your participation in ISO by completing the International Student Orientation registration form in IRIS, Reed's website for community members only.


If you have questions about ISO registration, contact Gwen Sandford, program director, at
