International Admissions

Accepted? Next Steps.


Congratulations on your acceptance to St. Cloud State! We are excited to welcome you to the Husky family. At St. Cloud State, you will find connection throughout campus that will help you unleash all that is within you. Before you begin your formal education, there are a few things you need to know on your way to St. Cloud. 


International Student Orientation is the best time to start your connection to campus. During this first week on campus, you will have the opportunity to not only get all your academic plans in place but you will also have the chance to meet other new and returning students!

International Student Orientation officially begins each semester the week before classes start on campus. 

Fall 2024 Orientation: August 13 - 16, 2024
Spring 2024 Orientation: January 4 - 5, 2024
