Welcome New International Students

Welcome to the Center for Global Engagement (CGE) and Florida State University. The CGE provides orientation, immigration advising, and ongoing support to over 3,000 international students and family members as well as to over 400 international scholars and faculty. We also offer a variety of educational, social and cultural programs for all FSU students throughout the year.


New International Student Orientation

At the CGE’s New International Student Orientation, you will learn about FSU’s campus resources, maintaining your immigration status, succeeding as a student at Florida State University, and living in Tallahassee. You will meet other new international students and learn important information to help you make friends and have a successful start at FSU.

Note: This in-person orientation is in addition to the Online Immigration Session, which you should complete before arriving, and New International Student Check-In, which you should do when you first arrive at FSU.
