Orientation

 

CSU San Bernardino (CSUSB) has returned to regular in-person classes.   All international students are expected to be in the United States at the start of classes and registered in the required number of units (12 units for undergraduates and 9 units for graduates).

iCoyote 101

iCoyote 101 International Student Orientation 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 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 resulting in the termination of their immigration records

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 the CSUSB campus and important immigration information. You must review and answer all questions after each video.
