Start your time off right by attending New Student Orientation. During this multi-day, online event, you will see the CapU spirit come alive!
This is your opportunity to meet faculty and other students and find out about the academic and student support services available to you, all while having fun and making your first CapU memories!
New international students are required to attend both the International Student Webinar and the New Student Orientation, as each provide unique and valuable information.
All events will take place virtually (the password for all Zoom sessions is CapU):
