In order to ensure a successful start to your academic career at the University of Colorado Denver (UCD), all new international students in F or J visa classification, including immigration transfers from other institutions within the US, are required to attend the mandatory "Check-In and Fundamentals" event. The day begins at 8am and ends at 5pm. You are required to attend the entire event. Lunch will be served at 12pm.
This event is designed to facilitate your successful start at CU Denver! We want to use this time to welcome you, to get to know you, and to share with you some essential information. It is separate from the main general New Student Orientation and also separate from any orientation provided by specific academic departments.
FRESHMEN (no college credits after high school graduation) ARE REQUIRED TO ATTEND AN ADDITIONAL ORIENTATION. PLEASE GO TO http://www.ucdenver.edu/life/services/orientation/freshmen/Pages/default.aspx FOR MORE INFORMATION.
During the "Check-In and Fundamentals", ISSS staff will be collecting documents and information from you that are required in order to report critical information to the US Department of Homeland Security regarding your arrival and your program of study. In addition, the session is designed to educate new students regarding immigration regulations that relate to their period of stay in the US. Also, students will be provided with information about campus services, how to obtain US social security cards and driver’s licenses, cultural adjustment issues, health services and insurance, and more.
Please remember to bring with you the check-in form(s) available on the ISSS Web site at http://international.ucdenver.edu/checkin. You must present the check-in form(s) in order to enter the session. We also ask that you arrive promptly at the start time of 8am and stay the entire day until 5pm.
Failure to attend this "Check-In and Fundamentals" or otherwise failing to check in with ISSS prior to the start of your academic program may result in the loss of your legal status in the United States.
