Mandatory Orientation
All admitted F-1 students are required to attend the International Student Orientation at the beginning of their first term in an FIT degree program. It is recommended that other nonimmigrant students also attend this discussion of terms and conditions of F-1 status; the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) holds all nonimmigrants responsible for observing the regulations affecting their status.
