Arrival & Orientation

International Student Orientation - Fall 2018

(Check back in February for more details)

The Office of International Programs will host a brief, one-day mandatory orientation for incoming international students prior to the full new student orientation.  Topics like health insurance, immigration, cultural issues, and practical resources will be covered.  You will get a chance to meet other Puget Sound students and staff members. International Student Orientation isn't just for international students on F-1 or J-1 Visas. Third Culture Kids are welcome to attend the international student orientation as well.


You will have the opportunity to move into your residence halls early so that you can attend the international student orientation.

Airport Pick-Up

If you are arriving early to attend our international student orientation (during our office operation hours), we will be able to provide airport pick-up services for you. Please contact us ahead of time if you need this service.
