Welcome to UC!

Support services include an international office and UCEAP team that will help you transition to your host UC. They will be your primary resource to answer your questions or direct you to the office that can. 

Be prepared to present/submit your passport, visa, I-94 receipt, and any other travel documents to the international student advisor. Contact the international student advisor with travel questions and before any travel that requires you to exit and re-enter the US.

During the term, visit the International Students Office to meet new friends, learn about US and UC life, and join cultural events and activities for international students.

Prior to the start of the term, attend the mandatory on-campus orientation. You will learn about enrollment, the benefits and responsibilities of your J-1 visa, safety and the services available on campus. Your host college or department may also hold an orientation.

Visit the Campus Specific Instructions for orientation dates and times.
