Mandatory International Student Orientation for Fall 2018: August 15 and 16.
During the two day International Student Orientation (called International BroncoVenture) undergraduate program, you will have the opportunity to take both Math and English course placement tests, meet with an academic advisor to pick out classes, learn about other university resources, learn about immigration regulations, and register for your classes. Orientation will familiarize you with the American higher education system and introduce you to the many resources and opportunities offered by the Boise State University community. You will also meet Center for Global Education staff, other university staff members, current Boise State students, and fellow international students!
Graduate students also attend the International Student Orientation to learn about graduate student resources and opportunities at Boise State University, as well as important immigration regulations. Please check your email frequently for further information.
One month before the semester begins, you will receive an email with information about how to sign up for International Student Orientation.
Important: Check both your personal email account, as well as your BroncoMail account (official Boise State University email) frequently during the weeks leading up to International Student Orientation as you will be receiving additional information about your program via email.
It is important that you attend all days of your orientation. United States Immigration Services require every international student to personally check in with their international student advisor. We are required to report your arrival to Boise State University to United States Immigration Services. If you do not come to orientation, we will have to report that you have not arrived.
If you have other appointments or errands you need to complete, such as meeting with a professor, setting up a bank account, and so on, you will need to take care of these tasks outside of the orientation program. Please do not schedule any other meetings or appointments during the orientation.
Important: The placement tests you will take at International Student Orientation are different from the IELTS or TOEFL test you may have taken in order to be admitted to Boise State University.
