Welcome and congratulations on your acceptance to Emory College of Arts and Sciences!

What is International Student Welcome?

International Students should arrive on campus on Tuesday, August 20, 2019 to move in and participate in the International Student Welcome program on August 20-23, 2019. The program is designed to help international first year and transfer students transition into the Emory Community before New Student Orientation begins. Through academic and social programs, students have the opportunity to engage with their peers and acclimate to the Emory campus.

Who can participate in International Student Welcome?

The International Student Welcome program is mandatory for any student attending Emory College on an F1 Visa. Students who have graduated from a secondary school outside of the United States are encouraged to participate, however you will need to submit an application to ensure you meet the qualifications of the program.

Registration will open in Spring 2019.

Can my parents attend?

Your parents are encouraged to attend and we will have family-specific programming. Families must register through a separate form that will be sent to the family email address provided on the student registration form. Keep in mind that there will also be programs for families throughout New Student Orientation on Saturday, August 24, 2019 and Sunday, August 25, 2019. Emory does not provide lodging for parents and families.
