International Orientation: January 12, 2021

All International Students are encouraged to attend the All-CGU New Student Orientation, in addition to the International Orientation Session and SEVIS Check-In (required for all F-1 and J-1 students).

All-CGU New Student Orientation
The All-CGU New Student Orientation familiarizes new students with important aspects of graduate student life at CGU. At Orientation, you will receive information on student services and resources at CGU, as well as program-specific information from your department of study.

International Orientation
Upon arrival to CGU, all International students on an F-1 or J-1 visa are required to attend the International Orientation. The Office of Student Life, Diversity & Leadership (SLDL) will host mandatory SEVIS Check-In sessions during the International Orientation to review federal regulations for visa holders.

International SEVIS Check-In Requirements

  • Immigration Documents
    All newly attending international students must bring their passport, I-94 (request online form), and visa (F or J).
  • Tuberculosis Testing
    Student Health Services requires that all new international students submit the Graduate Medical History Report/ Entrance Physical form, and undergo screening for required vaccinations and/or immunizations.
  • Health Insurance
    CGU requires that all international students with F-1 and J-1 student visas pay the International Student Services Fee, which includes the ISO accident and sickness plan. J-1 Exchange Students are not required to enroll in CGU’s ISO plan, but must have insurance in effect that covers sickness and accidents during the time of their exchange visitor program.
