International students come to campus before the semester for a mandatory orientation to learn about life at Lehigh and in the United States. All new international students must participate in this program. Over several days, you’ll meet other international and American students, connect with academic resources, and visit the local community—all so you feel at home and are ready to succeed when classes start.

Please note that there is a $160 international student fee that covers Orientation.

To confirm your attendance, please log in to iHome and click on New Students.
