Orientation

Congratulations on your admission to Eastern Michigan University. We recognize that beginning school in an unfamiliar community has its challenges, especially in a culture different from your own. That is why we offer a mandatory UNITED International Student Orientation as one of the first steps to help you transition to your life at EMU.

UNITED International Student Orientation for fall 2021 will be held on Friday, August 27, 2021. More details will be sent via emich.edu email later this summer. Remember to check your emich.edu email regularly for updates from the OISS!
