International Orientation will be held virtually August 11-13 and is mandatory for all F-1 and J-1 students.  The orientation program is designed to welcome students to YSU and help make your transition to campus as smooth and successful as possible.  During the orientation program, we will be presenting key information on immigration matters, health insurance, campus resources and more.  If necessary, you will take your placement tests and all students will register for classes.
