Whether an International Student is new to the U of M campus, or simply new to F-1 status, CIES is prepared to help the student get started on their path to academic success.

Our International New Student Orientation brings in speakers from a variety of offices on campus to keep students aware of safety, class registration, federal compliance, and other issues pertinent to their stay inside the U.S.  

Prior to arriving on campus, F-1 students have access to online information to assist with their government processes and can contact our staff with individualized questions through e-mail theworld@memphis.edu
