OIS, one of the pre-orientation programs sponsored for new Yale College students, is a fun-filled four-day program designed to introduce new international students to Yale and to the city of New Haven. All new Yale College international students are invited to attend OIS.
Organized and run by Yale College international students and Yale’s Office of International Students and Scholars, OIS will include discussions about academic life, social life and cultural adjustment. Students will go on campus and community tours, shopping excursions and have free time to take care of personal business such as setting up a bank account. The program also includes many recreational activities including picnics, soccer games, movies and time to hang out with new friends.
The cost of the orientation program is $200, which includes housing and all meals. This fee will be added to your financial account after the completion of the program. A fee-waiver will automatically be granted to any student on financial aid.
