    Helping International Students Assimilate

    Dean welcomes international students and conducts an orientation program at the start of each semester to facilitate your transition to college in the United States. International Student Orientation (ISO) combines fun activities with helpful workshops and presentations on academic support, technology services, immigration, advising and residence life. You'll also have a chance to meet our faculty and staff, connect with other Dean students, and make lots of new friends!
