Welcome International Students, we look forward to meeting you and are thrilled that you have made the decision to attend CU-Boulder! Our department, International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS), works with over 2500 international students and 800 visiting scholars each year and we are proud to have over 100 countries represented by our international student body. Here at CU, we greatly value not only the diverse and wonderful culture each international student brings to our campus but also the wider global mindset they inspire!
All international students are REQUIRED to attend an International Student Orientation for their level of study, complete their Pre-Arrival Orientation Course, and attend an Immigration Reporting Session. International students are required by immigration law to “report” and attend an immigration session with ISSS when you arrive in Boulder. Attendance and completion are tracked.
