ISO is a mandatory pre-orientation program which provides new University of Miami international students with valuable information that will assist in their transition to living and studying in the U.S. Material to be covered includes immigration rules international students must follow to stay in the U.S., academic expectations in the U.S., local community resources, life and customs in the U.S., and available health care, emergency assistance, and insurance coverage. New international students will also have an opportunity to meet and get acquainted with new peers. ISO will start promptly at the appointed hour, so please arrive on time. Nothing should take precedence. Dress comfortably (you may need a light sweater), and bring pen and paper for notes.
ISO will take place in the Whitten Learning Center (LC), Room 130, located at 5150 Brunson Drive, University of Miami, Coral Gables Campus. To view the location on the campus map, please go to: www6.miami.edu/communications/expression_images/site/maps/cgcampus_generalmap2.pdf
