Following this information session, you will take a placement test of listening, reading, writing, and English grammar skills to determine your level. The day will end with a tour of the campus and surrounding area in downtown D.C.
On Day 2, all new and returning students will be welcomed to the beginning of the semester with breakfast and activities. New students will also attend immigration and visa information sessions, as well as technology and textbook information sessions to prepare for the first day of classes.
