International Student Sessions


All students at FIU in F-1 or J-1 student status are required to attend a MANDATORY Welcome Immigration Session for International Students conducted by ISSS. This is a separate session, different from from other academic, departmental, or university-wide orientations and it will cover information specific to international students that you MUST be aware of.  These sessions are offered at both the Biscayne Bay Campus and the Modesto Maidique Campus every semester.
