Incoming Student Forums

Please Note: Most Forums will be hosted on Zoom. Links and passwords will be available on the registration form.

ISSS is hosting a series of Virtual Forums for international students and families. Speakers from both forums will take questions from you through the chat function and address as many as possible. Please be aware that, depending on the number of questions submitted, we may not be able to answer all of the questions. To help, we encourage students who have individual questions (items related to your personal situation) email isssnew@umn.edu.

Attention Graduate/Professional and Non-Degree Students

These webinars are planned for incoming undergraduate (first year and transfer) students. You are welcome to watch them, but you should know that your processes may be different.
