Orientation Program

iCoyote 101

iCoyote 101 International Students orientation program is designed specifically for new international students at CSUSB. The purpose of the program is to help incoming international students transition to CSUSB and the U.S. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to meet other international students from different countries. 

The Fall 2021 International student orientation is mandatory and all students must attend regardless of your physical location. Failure to attend orientation will result in a hold being placed on your account. You will not be able to enroll in courses or receive services from our campus. Students who do not meet this requirement may fall out of status and result in termination. 

The orientation and check-in process consist of 3 parts:

Part 1: Self-paced Orientation Program

Please review the orientation videos which include useful information about CSUSB campus and important immigration information. You must review and answer all questions after each video.

You can view the orientation videos: "Forthcoming"
