All new international students are required to attend the International Student orientation on-campus before the start of the term. A detailed orientation schedule will be provided over the summer.
In June, the International Office will host a Pre-Arrival Webinar for new students, to discuss topics such as what to expect when you arrive, how to get to CalArts, and things you will need to take care of before classes begin.
Pre-orientation modules will be released in early August with information that students may need before they arrive. Topics include F-1 Status Basics, Understanding U.S Health Insurance, How to Get a Driver License, etc.
