You will have two mandatory orientations to attend before starting classes at LSU:

  1. The International Student Orientation is hosted by the International Services Office
    • At this orientation, you will receive important information regarding your immigration status and campus services.
    • Orientation is held approximately 10 days before classes begin.
  2. Next, you will attend an orientation hosted by the International Exchange coordinator to cover specific topics for exchange students such as maintaining exchange availability, completing registration, opening a bank account, obtaining your LSU student ID card, health and safety, and more.

Since you will be required to attend orientation before the semester begins, temporary housing will be available at LSU.
