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 and student life
- Health Insurance, Fee billing and meal plans
- Personal health and safety
Because starting school without adequate preparation may be confusing, orientation is a very important element in the transition that students will soon be making. The International and Overseas American Orientation and the all new student orientation are both devoted to students’ concerns as new students.
Orientation provides ample opportunity to meet informally with "veteran" international and U.S. students, to learn from their experiences and 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 this extremely useful, and a lot of fun. It is much easier to meet people, through the orientation period, and get things done before everyone gets busy when classes begin.
