ISSO Orientation

The ISSO presents two different required ISSO Orientations.  The first one is presented online before you arrive, through Latte.  Latte is Brandeis University's online teaching and learning environment which you will become very familiar with during your time at Brandeis. You will receive an email with the link to access the orientation a couple months before classes begin.  In order to log into Latte for orientation, you will use your Brandeis user name and password.  This means that you must have your Brandeis email set up in order to access online orientation. In this mandatory session, the ISSO will review visa regulations as well as issues of employment, social security numbers, travel, and other pertinent information. 

Access Online Orientation:

F-1 Online Orientation

J-1 Online Orientation

Online Orientation for Other Visas

The second orientation will be after you arrive and will give you the opportunity to meet ISSO staff and ask any questions you  have. In order to come to the second orientation, you must complete the online orientation!  During your first days at Brandeis, you will be busy finding your way around campus, registering for classes and settling into your housing.  ISSO Orientation is just one of the many activities on your Orientation Schedule.

Both orientations are mandatory. Please make every effort to complete both sessions.
