We are excited that you will be joining our community for the fall 2020 semester. Orientation is an important first step towards your successful transition to life at Pace. All international students are required to attend one of our Orientation sessions. This year, out of an abundance of caution and the University’s desire to maintain a safe and healthy environment in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Orientation will be held virtually with additional portions that will require online completion before your registered Orientation date.
All undergraduate international students on an F-1 visa who are first-time students at Pace must also attend a mandatory F-1 Visa Status Maintenance Information Session for new international students. This information session will focus on immigration regulations pertaining to international students on an F-1 visa, visa applicable benefits, restrictions, and will include a mandatory check-in procedure for activating an F-1 student's SEVIS record.
