New International Student Orientation
The International Student & Scholar Services Office at Winona State University is excited to welcome new international students. The New International Student Orientation (NISO) is a mandatory program specifically designed for all new international students.
NISO covers information that you need to know whether this is your first time in U.S. or you have studied here already.
During NISO, you will meet your academic advisor and register for classes, receive your brand new laptop computer, learn about mandatory MN Health insurance, and more.
In addition to providing useful information to navigate our campus and city and be successful at Winona, NISO offers opportunities to meet other international students and it is a great way for you to begin your life at Winona State University.
