    The Center for International Education holds an informative and engaging Orientation program for all international students who are new to CSULB at the start of each Fall and Spring semester. Spring 2015 Orientation Week begins on Monday, January 12. All new international students must plan to arrive in the Long Beach area by Sunday, January 11 at the latest. 
     
    International Freshmen will attend the mandatory International Orientation Day on Monday, January 12, starting at 8:30am.  And International Transfers and Graduate students will attend the mandatory International Orientation Day on Tuesday, January 13 starting 8:30am. International Orientation Day features information presentations and group activities led by staff and student leaders.  Throughout the rest of the week, new students will have the option to attend various workshops, campus and community tours, as well as other activities.  The International Student Orientation Program is a great way to meet other new students and get to know the CIE staff.
