International Student Orientation is your opportunity to meet other international students and find out more about Saint Louis University.
You’ll learn about the requirements for maintaining your visa, take required placement
exams, enroll in classes and meet new friends. We’ll help you sign up for a cell phone,
open a bank account, and bring you to the store to get essential items for your first
few weeks on campus. You'll also register with the Office of International Services
so we can assist you during your stay.
Every international student should plan to attend SLU’s international orientation, even if you’ve studied in the United States before. Every school has different policies and resources, and it is important to know what is expected of you at SLU.
