International and Overseas American Orientation
International and Overseas American Orientation provides students with information that will be useful for them as they start their new academic career in Monmouth.
International and Overseas American Orientation provides essential information on
- U.S. immigration regulations governing employment, travel and course load
- U.S. education system, resources, academic success
- Adjustment to the U.S. culture
- Monmouth College registration procedures, residence life and student life
- Health Insurance, Fee billing and meal plans
- Personal health
- Safety and Security
- Starting school without adequate preparation can be confusing; orientation is an important element in the transition that students make. The International and Overseas American Orientation and the All New Student Orientation are geared to help students make a smooth transition to the College.
- Orientation provides ample opportunity to meet informally with "veteran" international and U.S. students, to learn from their experiences and to make new friends. Even if you have attended another U.S. university and participated in an orientation program before, you would agree that no two schools are alike, so you will find orientation to be extremely useful, and a lot of fun. It is much easier to meet people during orientation and get things done before everyone gets busy when classes begin.
