International Students

We are excited to welcome you to UHart! Orientation will happen virtually this year. 

Undergraduate students

Orientation for undergraduate students is on Aug. 14 for incoming students and Aug. 17 for transfer students. 

Graduate students

We are still finalizing the date for our graduate Orientation. 

Mandatory Immigration Session

In addition to Orientation, all international students who will be in the United States for the Fall 2020 semester must attend our Immigration Session. 

This virtual event will be held on Friday, Aug. 21 from 10–11:30 a.m. to discuss the F-1 immigration regulations that you will be required to maintain during the fall semester. We will also cover important information on how to complete your SEVIS check-in and registration which is required of all F-1 students in the US.  If you are unable to attend or have any questions regarding the Immigration Session, please contact the International Center at  

If you plan to attend Fall 2020 online from outside the US, please work with your admissions counselor to ensure that you have requested an updated I-20 for Spring 2021. You do not need to attend the Immigration Session until you are ready to begin coursework in the US.
