Gateways International Student Orientation

Gateways International Student Orientation is designed to assist you in your transition to U.S. culture and education.

This special orientation will assist you in taking care of important personal matters such as setting up a bank account, receiving information on and/or purchasing a cell phone, meeting with Health Services personnel, and shopping for essential supplies. Additionally, you will receive helpful information on U.S. Immigration requirements, U.S. cultural adjustments, academic expectations, and campus support services. This is the ideal time to meet faculty, staff and student leaders who will serve as resources for you as you acclimate to life at Holy Cross.

We strongly encourage all international students to participate in this special orientation.  The program registration link will be emailed in early summer to all Class of 2026 international students via their Holy Cross email accounts. Registration will close in late summer.

Please email with questions. For additional information on the resources available to international students, please visit the Office of International Student website
