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!
