SUU Orientation

 International Student Orientation

International students attend both an International Student Orientation with International Student & Scholar Services and a Traditional Orientation with other SUU students.  This allows international students to meet one another as well as get introduced to domestic students on campus.  All international students should register for the UNIV 1020 Acculturation course before or during this program.  There will be arrival services offered to help international students transition to life in Cedar City, UT.
