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 non-immigrant students also attend this discussion of terms and conditions of F-1 status. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) holds all non-immigrants responsible for observing the regulations affecting their status.
