International Orientation

International Students

Welcome to the Lehigh Family!

As a new international student, it is our pleasure to welcome you to Lehigh University! We have designed a special pre-orientation program to help answer all your questions, a Big Brother/Big Sister Mentoring program and a Follow-Up Orientation – Community Weekend to help you adjust to your new life at Lehigh and the United States!

The International Student & Scholar Orientation Program will be of great assistance to you as you embark on your adventure here at Lehigh. We will provide you with vital information and ideas regarding your academic career at Lehigh. Sessions will also include advice on immigration issues, health insurance, academic and social adjustment. During this time you will have the opportunity to meet some of the international students studying at Lehigh. You are required to attend both the International and New Student Orientation programs.
