What's International Student Orientation?

All new international students are required to attend International Student Orientation, which is coordinated by the Office of International Student Services (ISS) at the beginning of your first semester at SUNY- Brockport.

The main purpose of orientation is to provide you important information regarding immigration and visa regulations, campus policies and procedures, and other information you need to know as a student at SUNY- Brockport.

Upcoming Pickups

In order to attend the international student orientation, you will need to reserve a flight or port of entry in advance to the start of the semester. Also you will need to contact International Student Services to tell when your arrival date and time are, so that we can provide you transportation to the campus.

Dates for pick up are limited as seen below. If your arrival is outside of these dates, you will need to schedule your own transportation to Brockport.

  • A bed cover/sheet
  • Pillow and pillow case
  • Towel
  • Basic skin care and cosmetic items
  • Clothing items reflecting climate at a time (You may want to bring at least a long sleeve shirt/tops and a pair of long pants even for Summer, in case of sudden climate change)

Also, we have some bundled dorm packages provided by a program called Dorm-In-A-Box, which helps you to get all the basic items you need to be directly delivered to your dorm.
