Vaccine guidance for international students and scholars

Getting Started

International students and scholars face many challenges when beginning their studies in a new country. The Global Education Office staff offers assistance, guidance and support as they adjust to a different culture and pursue their educational goals.

Pre-arrival Modules

The pre-arrival modules provide incoming international students with information about:

  • local housing options, health insurance, banking and other essential needs
  • resources and practices to help you do well in your classes
  • opportunities for getting to know your classmates and professors, making new friends and exploring Richmond and the region

NOTE: New international students MUST complete all modules prior to arrival.
