International Student Orientation

Welcome to the Javelina Family!

We are delighted that you are joining the Javelina Nation!  TAMUK is committed to your success as an active member of the international Javelina family.  Therefore, you are strongly encouraged to arrive early--at least ten days or two weeks before classes start.  This will give you time to adjust from travel, become familiar with your new surroundings, and provide adequate time to make arrangements for banking and housing.

International Student Orientation is where the Javelina tradition really starts!  It is a vital step toward successful transition into your new “home away from home”!  Orientation provides important information regarding your stay as a student, campus resources, and services in the community.  A few of the topics discussed will be academic expectations, immigration regulations, programs, safety, and support services at TAMUK. 

Log-in to your Blue & Gold Connection to register for International Student Orientation!

*Undergraduate Freshman International Students must also attend New Student Orientation.  To register, email: for further instructions.  In addition, undergraduate students must register for and attend International Student Orientation as noted above.  If you are an undergraduate transfer student (from one U.S. institution into TAMUK), please register for Transfer Student Orientation.
