International Student Orientation


Welcome to UCR!

We are excited to have you join our Highlander community at UC Riverside. This year, we have had to make changes to our International Student Orientation (ISO).

For Fall 2020, we will be moving to an online orientation. ISO 2020 will consist of pre-orientation events, self-paced modules, some live online sessions and plenty of opportunities to connect with your peers!

Save the date:

  • Mid-September: Self-paced modules will be available on iLearn.
