New international students will need to attend two mandatory Orientation sessions with the ISSI (International Student and Scholar Institute) after they arrive on campus. The Visa Clearance session is required by government regulations. If you do not attend this session, you will be in violation of your visa and you will be dropped from your classes. The SEVIS training session will be extremely valuable in teaching you about federal regulations you will need to be aware of during your time at Northeastern.
More information about these sessions, as well as a schedule, can be found here. ISSI is located in 405 Ell Hall. Please feel free to contact them with any questions at email@example.com or 617-373-2310.
