Online International Student Orientation

You are here

All new international students must complete the Online International Student Orientation (OISO).

What is it?

OISO was created to help international students learn about immigration regulations and policies in a fun, interactive way. It is an online class that all new international students must complete on Blackboard Learn. New students will be automatically enrolled in this Blackboard class by the third week of the semester.


There is a Final Test that students must complete after they finish OISO. The Final Test becomes available on Blackboard only after students complete OISO. Students must score at least an 80% on the Final Test. If students do not score an 80%, they can retake the Final Test as many times as they need until they get the score.

If a student does not score an 80% on the Final Test before January 17th, 2017 a hold will be placed on the student's account that will prevent that student from registering for classes in the following semester.

There is a guide here that explains lots of information about OISO that you can view here. There is also a Message Board on the OISO Course on Blackboard Learn where you can ask questions. Additionally, you can email the course instructor:
