New International Student Orientation

The Office of International Education and Development welcomes you to Western Oregon University and looks forward to your arrival at WOU!

The New International Student Orientation program aims to orient new international students to life in the United States and to Western Oregon University. Orientation is designed to provide our new international students with information about WOU, its policies and procedures, its campus and facilities, and the City of Monmouth and local resources. It is important for all new or transfer international students to attend orientation.
