International Parent and Family Orientation

International Place of The Claremont Colleges recognizes that parents and family are an important part of the international student experience.

For this reason, we offer an orientation session customized for the international parents and family members accompanying our incoming international students and scholars to NISSO.


International Parent & Family Orientation Session

Please check back soon for more information on NISSO 2019.

This information session is designed specifically for the parents and family of international students attending the Undergraduate NISSO program. It is an excellent opportunity to meet other parents and family of international students at The Claremont Colleges.

During the session, guests will:

  • Learn about international student support services and resources at The Claremont Colleges
  • Learn about immigration and employment issues related to students’ immigration status
  • Address issues directly related to being the parent of an international student
  • Have an opportunity to ask questions of representatives of your student’s college

Please note: This event is for parents and family members of students. During the International Parent and Family Orientation Session, new students will be engaged in the New International Student and Scholar Orientation (NISSO).
