You're Almost Here!
In your first few weeks at Yale, you will participate in many orientation events with your school and across the university to help you settle into your new life in New Haven. All incoming international students are required to participate in the OISS Orientation.
For Graduate and Professional students, you will register for your school-specific OISS Orientation towards the end of July in OISS Passport To Yale on Yale Connect.
For Yale College students, you will have the opportunity to attend OIS: Orientation for International Students, one of Yale's pre-orientation programs. Registration will open this summer.
Accessing Passport to Yale
How to access the OISS Passport to Yale app in Yale Connect. This will allow you to register for your orientation and connect with other incoming international students.
