International Student Orientation Registration



A special orientation program unique to international students and missionary kids (MKs) is mandatory for all students with an F-1 visa. Missionary kids coming directly from overseas to Moody must also attend international student orientation.

This orientation is intended to assist missionary kids through the repatriation process as well as help international students adjust to life in the United States. There are also several important immigration sessions that take place during this time.

One of the most rewarding aspects of international student and missionary kid orientation is the opportunity it gives to international students and missionary kids to make lasting friendships with each other. These friendships often form a support network for the students that will help them through their Moody career.

Students are asked to complete the International Student MK Orientation Registration form below.

Rides are available for incoming students from all of Chicago's major airports, train stations and bus stations. New students who need a ride are asked to complete the Ride Request Form.
