All international students are required by immigration law to go through an immigration orientation session with the ISO upon arrival to MIT. During this immigration session, an ISO advisor will discuss immigration documents, how to maintain legal status, employment in the US, travel, and other miscellaneous important information.
New International Undergraduate Students have a mandatory ISO Immigration Orientation scheduled for Tuesday, August 23.
New International Graduate Students admitted as a degree candidate to MIT and plan to enroll in the Fall semester should check their academic department orientation schedules to verify if there is an ISO Immigration Orientation Session already scheduled for your specific program. If not, you can sign-up for an ISO Immigration Orientation Session on iMIT.
