International students have the opportunity to be one of the first groups of students to arrive on campus.  Arriving early will give you additional days to settle into your housing, navigate your way around campus, learn critical information that will help you acclimate to your life in the U.S., as well as understand the academic expectations at King’s College.   The International Student Registration and Orientation is a great way for new international students to feel welcome and get started on your King’s experience!

Fall 2020 International Student Orientation

Welcome to King’s College! The mandatory international registration and orientation will be held on Tuesday, August 25th and Wednesday, August 26th.    We strongly encourage all students to arrive in Wilkes-Barre no later than Sunday, August 23rd so you can get settled in before orientation begins. There will be a mandatory T-spot test done at orientation and this is required before you can attend classes.
