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 in-person International Student Orientation is mandatory, and all students must attend. Failure to attend orientation will result in a hold being placed on your account. This hold will prevent you from being 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 process consists of 3 required parts:

Part 1: Self-paced Orientation Program
