The International Programs Office
The International Programs Office (IPO) holds the International Student Orientation program for new international students prior to the start of the fall and spring semesters. This is a mandatory orientation for all new international students at the undergraduate and graduate levels and it is separate from the WSU orientation.
Orientation will assist you with becoming familiar with your new surroundings and learning about your new environment. Many international students are not only beginning a new educational program, but are also being introduced to a whole new culture. The IPO has planned a thorough orientation program that will introduce students to Worcester State University (WSU). The program will provide students with assistance regarding immigration and visa status, academic advising, course registration, cultural adjustment, and an introduction to the many services on campus. We want to prepare students for academic programs as well as student life at WSU. We also want to provide fun and relaxing opportunities to socialize with other students.
