International Student Orientation Program (ISOP)

How do I know whether ISOP will help my transition as a first-year international student?

The primary goal of ISOP is to help prepare international students who have limited experience in the U.S. to transition into the U.S. culture both inside and outside of the classroom. If you are exploring whether to attend one of the three optional pre-orientation programs, check out "Is ISOP For Me?" The document will help you determine whether ISOP is a good choice for you.

What is ISOP?

The International Student Orientation Program (ISOP) is designed to help international first-year students comfortably transition into the Columbia University community before the New Student Orientation Program (NSOP). Programs during ISOP range from helping new students set up a phone or bank account to understanding the Columbia academic culture and getting to know New York City.
