New Students

You are here

Orientation attendance is required for all international students. Students will learn about their legal obligations as a nonimmigrant student and other important information related to being a student at UMD.


All international students have a hold on their student record that will not be released until they have completed both online and in-person orientation requirements.  Students who fail to complete these requirements will not be able to register for classes in the future.


Please bring the following documents with you to orientation:

  1. Passport and visa stamp (in your passport)

  2. I-20

  3. I-94

  4. Previous school's I-20 (if you attended another school in the U.S)

  5. University of Minnesota ID number (on your admission letter)
