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.

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. 

Fall 2022 International Student Orientation will take place on-campus from August 19-22. Registration will open on May 1. Check back for more information in late spring 2022. Until then, more information for new international students can be found on the international student orientation website.
