New Student Orientation

Welcome to SFA!

Congratulations on your acceptance to Stephen F. Austin State University! From the minute you set foot in Nacogdoches, the Office of International Programs is dedicated to helping you achieve an amazing educational experience.

New International Student Orientation

It's our pleasure to help you become well acquainted with your new campus and the amenities that it provides.

Fall 2015

In the fall of 2015, there will be two required orientation sessions -- one on Wednesday, August 26th, and another on Thursday, August 27th. Both session are required by all students, and will begin promptly at 10:00 a.m. in the Office of International Programs. We are located on the 4th floor of the Vera Dugas, Liberal Arts North Building, Room #402. (#48 on the SFA Campus Map)

As the first orientation session (Wednesday, August 26th) will cover immigration, all students will need to bring their immigration paperwork (I-20 and Passport) and proof of health insurance (if previously purchased) with them on this day.

International Student Handbook

The Office of International Programs has taken the time to put together an International Student Handbook, which contains everything that students may want or need to know about SFA while attending school here. Inside, students can find information pertaining to immigration, housing, dining, travel, cultural adjustment, and so much more!
