Graduate International Student Orientations

General Information
Once the academic year begins, you might not find time to seek out certain vital information, or to make sure that the ‘information’ you receive from your friends/family is correct. This is why it’s very important for you to attend this orientation. We want to make sure all Fordham international students stay in legal status. During this orientation, we will answer your questions and provide important information and resources regarding:

  • Immigration – Maintaining your status!

  • Banking, Cell Phones, Credit Cards
