Fall Orientation

We are excited that you will be joining our community for the Fall 2016 semester. Below is all the information you need to get started for Transfer Orientation at Pace University.

All international students must attend Orientation.
Students currently in the U.S. on an F-1 visa or other non-immigrant visa (i.e: E2, G4, H4,L2, etc.) transferring from a 2-year or 4-year U.S. college/university who will be staying in the U.S. for the summer may attend Transfer Orientation on June 28, July 26 or August 30 for admitted NYC Campus students. Admitted Westchester Campus students may attend Transfer Orientation on July 1 or September 2. Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) students may also attend one of these Orientation dates.
Students who will be receiving an F-1 visa from a U.S. Consulate’s Office* during the summer and are currently residing in their home country must attend the Transfer Orientation on August 30 (for NYC Campus admitted students) or September 2 (for Westchester Campus admitted students). *Please note: F-1 visa holders outside of the U.S. cannot enter the U.S. on the F-1 visa no more than 30 days before the start of the school year which begins on September 7, 2016.
In addition, all international students on an F-1 visa who are first-time students at Pace must attend International Student Orientation (ISO) on September 1, 2016 from 8:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. (for admitted NYC Campus students) and September 2 from 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. (for admitted Westchester Campus students). The International Student Orientation will focus on immigration regulations pertaining to international students on F-1 visa, visa applicable benefits and restrictions, and other helpful information about Pace University services for international students.
