2017 International Orientation

In addition to the New Student Orientation, Harvey Mudd requires that you participate in the New International Student and Scholar Orientation (NISSO) on August 20, 21, and 22, organized by International Place of The Claremont Colleges.  In addition to planning this specialized orientation, International Place also offers an Airport Pickup service on Saturday, August 19. You should plan on arriving in the Los Angeles area on Saturday, August 19th, for the Airport Pickup service, and to move into your campus housing.

New International Student and Scholar Orientation occurs before each college’s own new student orientation, to assure that students have the chance to participate in both activities.

Please visit the International Place website for more information.
