Full Summary:

No summary paragraph submitted.

We welcome your student to the Georgia Institute of Technology as they begin their exciting journey in the U.S. in pursuit of a world-class degree. While your student is at Georgia Tech, the Office of International Education’s (OIE) ISSS advisors serve as their resource for matters related to immigration, visas, academics, and student resources. We advocate for the large and diverse population of international students and scholars at Georgia Tech and partner with our colleagues across campus to create an environment where students can make a well-integrated transition to Georgia Tech through a wide range of cultural, educational, and leadership opportunities.

The value that international students, scholars, and faculty bring to the Georgia Tech community is unquestioned. Georgia Tech’s President, Àngel Cabrera, recently said, “Georgia Tech has grown into one of the most global research universities in the nation. The overall student body attracts students from 127 countries, and 54 percent of our bachelor’s degree recipients have an international experience prior to graduation. I am particularly proud of the Georgia Tech community for its broad global perspective, its welcoming environment, and its ability to come together to address challenges in a positive manner. I know I speak on behalf of the entire Georgia Tech community when I say we are enormously proud of our international students and the international scholars. Georgia Tech is a stronger, better place because of the contributions of our international community. You are welcome here, and you are valued.”

Your student receives pre-arrival communication from OIE available at oie.gatech.edu/isss/pre-arrival-communication. This information includes guidance about the student visa application process, preparing for arrival to Atlanta, and the OIE online check-in process. Students are encouraged to begin the OIE check-in process using iStart before leaving home. Complete details about international student check-in are at oie.gatech.edu/isss-check-in.

The International Student Welcome Series will begin the week before classes and continue throughout the first semester. The International Student Welcome Series includes several informational sessions that supplement FASET Orientation and address a variety of topics that are essential and of interest to international students. Complete details about the Welcome Series are available at oie.gatech.edu/isss/welcome-series.

We look forward welcoming your student to Georgia Tech!
