Special welcome to new students

Welcome to Virginia Tech!  We are excited that you will be a student in less than a month!  At this point you may have questions about how best to prepare for your transition to Virginia Tech, and what to expect when you arrive.

International Graduate Students: Please visit the International Graduate Student Services Website

International Undergraduate Students: In addition to sending you informational emails, Cranwell International Center has planned an orientation program that will begin before you arrive to campus and will continue as you settle into your new life here. The three-step orientation program includes:

  • Step One: Pre-Arrival Online Orientation
    This mandatory orientation will include important information about tasks you need to complete before you come to Virginia Tech.
  • Step Two: Document Check-In Session
    Once you arrive in the U.S. you must complete a mandatory Document Check-In with the Cranwell International Center staff.  Make sure to register for this session.
  • Step Three: New Undergraduate Student Orientation
    This orientation program is designed for all new students joining Virginia Tech Spring 2016. During this time on Friday January 15, you will be welcomed by university administrators, meet other new American and International students and get to know more about Virginia Tech. The programs starts at 9:30 a.m. on the 1st Floor of the Smith Career Center.

There is a lot to do in the coming weeks but we are looking forward to being a part of this journey with you.  Please let us know how we can assist you!
