International Transfer Orientation & Advisement

Orientation programs assist new students as they make the transition to life at the University at Albany. Our friendly and informed staff will provide the guidance and support you need to become fully integrated into the campus community.

The sessions are designed specifically for international students and include cultural, regulatory, and social activities.
