International Orientation

International Orientation is mandatory for all new F-1 and J-1 students at Bellarmine. We introduce you to life at Bellarmine and in Louisville and answering questions about studying in the U.S. Additionally, we will discuss the important regulatory requirements you must follow to maintain your student status. We will also check you into SEVIS for the semester, which we must complete before classes begin. If we do not do this during orientation, your SEVIS record will be canceled.  

Please remember that there are additional separate orientations for new first-year undergraduates, transfer undergraduates, and graduate students. You should be receiving information about these activities. 

Inform International Support of your travel plans. We are happy to answer any questions.
