International Student Orientation

Trinity International Student Orientation (ISO) is a mandatory three-day orientation program designed to assist new students (including transfer and exchange students) with familiarizing themselves with Trinity and immigration regulations related to their visa.

(The ISO continues for 10 weeks after the semester starts, it is infused into the INTL 1100 course. The International Student Orientation Course (INTL 1100) is a mandatory ten-week course offered each fall semester for new international students. Through ISO and the INTL1100 course, we offer cultural and academic adjustment support to help ensure that you are able to build a foundation for success here at Trinity.)
