The beginning of each semester at TAMU-CC starts with many orientation sessions.
- You may be required to attend Islander Launch, the university orientation program, which will introduce the university system, services, and processes to you.
- If you are a graduate student, you may be required to attend Graduate Orientation which will give you general guidelines on how to succeed in the graduate school. Students of other major colleges will be required to attend Major-specific Orientation.
- Our international office hosts International Orientation a separate mandatory orientation for all new and transferred international students. All new, and transfer, international students are required to attend the orientation before starting classes. In this program, we address university processes and specific rules for F1 students. Although we will remind you of those rules throughout the semester, it will benefit you to understand immigration rules from the beginning to avoid unfortunate terminations.
