The Center for International Programs (CIP) is the primary contact and point of service for all international students at UD.  However, Student Transitions and Family Programs (STFP) and CIP work together to help welcome and orient new first-year international students.  

Knowing your international student classification is key to understanding which orientation experiences you are required to attend.  International students are note required to attend NSO. All Fall-enrolled international students who are classified as first-time undergraduate, first-year student (Freshmen) are required to attend Welcome Weekend in addition to any other transition programs required by CIP.  

For your convenience the chart below has been provided to help clarify orientation attendance requirements.
