The ISSO partners with the Office of Graduate Affairs and the three Graduate Schools to welcome new international graduate students to the Brandeis Community. Each Graduate School may have its own individual orientation program but the ISSO coordinates a few important sessions for all international graduate students.

To learn more about orientation programming for graduate students, visit the Office of Graduate Student Affairs and your graduate school information page for details. Additional information about orientation will be shared as it becomes available.
